Cabbage Fruit Salad

This salad goes well with all meats—it's especially good at barbecues—and fish. I recently served it at the Prayer Brunch of our local women's club. After 55 years of marriage, I'm a wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother doing the things I like to do...and cooking's on top of that list!

    Wow! What a great salad! I did use mandarin oranges instead of fresh, but it was still great! Everyone kept asking for the recipe.

    OOO, This was horrible. I followed the exact recipe. It was horrible, nobody wanted any. However, the recipe titled, 'Compnay Vegetables Casserole' went very fast, everyone loved it!

    This salad was delicious. I substituted fresh blueberries for the currents and added 1 tsp. poppy seeds to the dressing. Yummy!
