Using pastel marshmallows, both young and old alike are sure to enjoy this colorful Easter fruit salad from Deanna Richter of Elmore, Minnesota. Deanna recommends making this traditional favorite the day before it is served.
Field editor Lavonne Hartel of Williston, North Dakota chuckles as she relates, “Our nephew recently told me this salad is his favorite, but the first time he ate it at my house, he thought I was cleaning out the refrigerator!“
This slightly tangy oil and vinegar dressing complements a bowl of mixed salad greens or a colorful vegetable toss nicely. It's not overpowering, so the fresh vegetable flavors shine through.

I can't think of a better dish to round out a meal. My grain salad features all my favorite nuts, seeds and fruits. Try adding grilled chicken to make it a meal on its own. —Rachel Dueker, Gervais, Oregon
