My Mother use to make this for the patriotic holidays. She gave me this recipe when I was a teenager. I often think of my parents and family whenever I make this fun salad!

This salad loses a lot of caleries when you use sugar-free and light ingredients... still tastes great!

For other holidays you can substitute other flavors and fruits and garnishes... it is an easy and fun recipe!

I just wanted to post the original version of my Mother's recipe.
