I haven’t posted a recipe in awhile, not because I haven’t cooked or consumed any food. No, my winter layer of warmth is coming along quite nicely thanks to rolls, truffles, cake balls and stew. Not all eaten together of course. I’ve just been lazy. BUT I want to share with you the fastest, most simple salad I have ever made. Not only is it fast and simple, it is delicious! And pretty. Fast, simple, delicious and pretty. I got the recipe from a friend who had gotten it from a friend, Mrs. Din Wilson. I made it for Thanksgiving and I am making it for the Sunday School Christmas party. You can throw this entire thing together in less than 10 minutes, and while it is supposed to sit for 24 hours before serving….well. Some rules were made to be broken! So here it is, Mrs. Din Wilson’s 24 Hour Salad.
Just throw them in a large bowl,
Cut the grapes in half and toss them in as well.
Last but not least, add the sour cream!
Stir it all together until well mixed, cover and chill 24 hours.
This recipes is very forgiving so feel free to add or omit fruit according to your taste buds. Just don’t omit the marshmallows, that would defeat the purpose and make it much to healthy to be a holiday salad.
