“Kids and adults alike love this 'salad!' Nice to slice & serve on a lettuce leaf (for presentation)- the colors can be varied to suit any holiday - greens & reds for Christmas, varying shades of red for Valentine's Day, etc.. ENJOY! This sounds like a lot of work, but it's really not. This is one I like to make when I'll be working around home all day, and can stop to do step after step. :)”
