Tangy Floret Salad
ONE OF my favorite and most-used recipes, this salad is easy to prepare for two or 20! I often improvise with other fresh ingredients such as carrots, onions, celery, parsley and even crunchy water chestnuts. Around our house, this recipe is known as "Jenny's Salad" in honor of our daughter-in-law, who introduced it to us. -Sally Frizzell, New London, Ohio
