I created this recipe when my children were small and fussed about eating fruits and vegetables. The slightly sweet dressing makes it a hit. This iceberg salad was part of our Friday meal when I served fried fish and boiled potatoes. My grown children call this "Mom's Salad". —M.J. Zimmerman, Altoona, Pennsylvania
