Puppy Dog Salad
Not only does my daughter, Courtney, love this fruity nutritious salad, but it's something she can actually make herself. Made from healthy dried and canned fruits, this cute dish doesn't require any baking or cooking. It's an ideal snack for youngsters to assemble and eat.—Jenni Miller, Olathe, Kansas
