This recipe was passed down by my mother. We serve it often, but especially at Christmas and Thanksgiving. Of course, the green color makes it nice for St. Patrick’s Day, too. With the marshmallows, pecans and whipped cream, the sweet salad can even be served as a light dessert. I like to cook for both small groups and large crowds. When our entire family gets together for thanks and feasting, it’s a wonderful time!
