This is basically a "dump" type salad in that all the ingredients are eventually mixed together.
Mix first 3 ingredients together well and chill. Cook rice until tender and cool. Dissolve gelatin in boiling water. Add rice and crushed pineapple with juice. Drain fruit cocktail and add to rice/pineapple mixture. The first 3 combined ingredients can be mixed in last with the fresh fruit. Pour into bowl and let jell. The salad is topped with the whipped cream after it has started to jell

Do you mix it all together, or put in the bowl in layers?
What do you do with the applesauce, bananas and cherry mixture?
The whip cream and fresh fruit? I think part of this recipe is missing!
If anyone gets this figured out, I would love to know. It sounds delicious but wouldn't want to mess it up by guessing what to do with the 'extras'. I've Googled ABC Salad but they all seem to be something else entirely. Thanks.
Editor's Note: The recipe has been updated above. You basically mix all the ingredients together.
And my questions are: how much salad does this make? Is the rice Uncooked or cooked? Sounds like a lot of stuff not to know exactly what you are doing. Anxious to hear from you.
