Christmas Vegetable Salad Recipe

Christmas Vegetable Salad Recipe

My sister gave me this recipe at a family gathering one year, and I've been making her colorful, crisp salad for holiday get-togethers, dinner parties and potlucks ever since. This festive salad travels well and holds up beautifully on the buffet table, so it's ideal for making ahead. Serve it in a clear bowl so everyone can see the pretty color combination. —Mary Dean, Eau Claire, Wisconsin
