"This salad is wonderful! I reminds me of a salad my mom used to make; however, her's has a cooked dressing that takes longer. This salad goes together quickly and is so good! To keep the ingredients fresh, don't add the dressing until you're ready to serve."

"My husband generally doesn't like cabbage or cole slaw but he really enjoys this sweet, crunchy salad. I like to make it at Easter time. The pineapple, apple, walnuts & marshmallows really make it stand out."
