Crimson Salad-Annette's

I love anything with vinegar, onion and a crunch. It's all about textures. Not to mention it's beautiful. I also love sweet, salty and savory together. I wish every meal could have a combination of all three. Oh wait, I guess they could if I cooked that way all the time. This salad is great along side just about any meat. It's especially great in the summer when you don't want to mess with mayo in the heat. We love it with burgers and grilled chicken.

Recipe is my own.
