Here’s a festive, flavorful quick-toss salad that adds color to any table. Contributor Diana Smith from Wesson, Mississippi says, “A lady brought this to a church gathering. It was so pretty and wonderful, I just had to have the recipe.” TIP: You could substitute toasted pine nuts for the sunflower kernels for a different kind of crunch.
