    If you would have served me this Christmas Salad 30 years ago, I would have balked and run for the hills. I hated all vegetables with a passion. I wouldn’t even try them.

    Fast forward to today and I cannot get enough of them. I don’t know what happened. It was like a veggie hating switch flicked when I turned 20 years old.

      We really liked it. Easy to make and very healthy. We felt something was missing even though followed recipe. I used apple cider and right amunt of sugar, Maybe a little more sugar? Your picture of the salad was very enticing. definitely making it again.
