I love congealed salads but I have to be so careful because I am allergic to red food dye. No Red Velvet Cake for me !
This is an old recipe but it's so colorful and healthy. I like a slice for a bed time snack (already had 3) LOL. Not only is it tasty it is an Autumn delightful center piece. Enjoy !!
I will post some other "NOT RED" congealed salad recipes incase there are others allergic to red food dye. It makes me look like I'm on strong steroids.
