    Lorraine of AZ's Note:

    Way back when, salads that were as pretty as a picture were quite the thing. Here is a salad that was very popular at the time. I have also included other popular picture salads of the period.

      Yum! This took me back to my childhood - my Mom used to make this often. I used sliced peaches and really enjoyed this salad. Thanks for sharing. Made for Cookbook Tag.
