Party Pink Salad

My mother, Lillian Summer (1906-2000) made this salad many times, and sometimes made it with lime Jell-O, calling it "that green salad." One spring, after she passed, my daughter asked, "Mama, can you make that green salad of Maw-Maw's for Easter dinner?" I knew exactly which dish she meant! I have written a book of memories of my mother titled, "That Green Salad"!
