Lime Chiffon Dessert

This delightful recipe is from my wonderful neighbor Betty Cox. I love everything she makes and she's always just a call away when I need help with a recipe or ingredients. But this recipe is SO delicious. Its has a green tent to it so its perfect for Christmas parties or reunions, but its a cold dessert so it would be just as good in the summer!
