Winter salad (can be made in the summer too)

Dorothy Curtis


I have had this recipe for years and I do not know where it came from. I took it to a birthday pot luck once and most of the people there were German and they were raving about this salad I brought. Naturally they thought some one German had brought the dish---I never told that it was me.

What a great sweet and sour little salad. It is easy to prepare and packs a punch of flavor. This is wonderful served as a side or I think it would be delicious served on a hot dog or burger too. Delish! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
