Raggedy Ann Salad

Julia Ferguson


My mom knew early on I was going to love to cook. I was probably 8 or 9 when I got my very first cookbook for Christmas. It was Betty Crocker's Cook Book for Boys and Girls. I made these salads for our dinner tonight from this cookbook.
My husband is such a great guy he just goes along with the program. Imagine a grown man eating a Raggedy Ann Salad.
Go ahead make it for your kids or grandkids, they will love it and your husband, maybe not so much, but that's okay. Whatever it takes to get the kids to eat their veggies. Who's gonna complain about that?
