While touring Door County, I sampled this salad. As soon as I got home, I wrote the lady who'd made it requesting the recipe. The mix of rice, vegetables and orchard-fresh fruit is a tasty way to remember Wisconsin's premier cherry-growing area. —Yvonne Gorges, New London, Wisconsin

I made this salad for a funeral dinner and received many requests for the recipe. The only thing I changed was that I doubled the dressing. It was delicious and a nice change from the usual pasta or jello salads. It definately is a "keeper".
