Marjorie VaughnLarry’s mother, Marjorie, shown here, used to make this salad every year for our family Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. Served as a side dish, it provides a delicious sweet-sour flavor with just a touch of bitterness that is just perfect when served with turkey, dressing and gravy! This is one of those dishes that is even better after being refrigerated for several hours to let the flavors blend. We always enjoy it greatly with the turkey sandwiches the day after the holiday!
