This colorful salad recipe came from my mother-in-law and is a family favorite. I've shared it with friends over the years. It's delicious at a potluck, packed in lunches, at barbecues and more. It keeps in the frigerator for a good week. There are other versions out there, but my dressing had less oil and I use Splenda to cut down on the sugar, but you can use regular sugar if you like. Cooking time includes 2 hours for refrigeration.
