Fruited Cabbage Salad Recipe

"The recipe came from a neighbor who invited us for lunch after church," Kathy recalls. "I bring it to potlucks and family get-togethers. It's very versatile. You can substitute lettuce for the cabbage and add almost any fruit. Almonds, peanuts or sunflower kernels can be used in place of the pecans," she adds.
