Della's Prune Salad

Stephanie L.


One of my husband's relatives from Chicago made this salad,it's unusual but delicious.
The kids tease that Aunt Della always puts prunes in her food. She makes a prune danish that's very good and she makes a chicken dish with prunes. Maybe they're right! She DOES cook with a lot of prunes! LOL!
