    ChrysalisUnfurled's Note:

    This salad is both healthy AND delicious. Not only that but it is quick to make, yields alot, looks attractive and is even tastier as leftovers. Kids love it as it is virtually a dessert salad. I must give credit to my late Aunt Ruth, from whom I received this recipe.

      Scaled back for 3-4 serves and then even used less vegies and fruit than the recipe called for and for 3 persons still had a full serve left over, though the DM has claimed than for lunch. Personally though very enjoyable I preferred what I tasted without the dressing so would make without in the future but otherwise a very healthy recipe that got some vegies into my DM which I very grateful for, thank you ChrystalisUnfurled and made for Name that Ingredient tag game.
