Cheerful and quick salad

Last night we had one of those ‘hmm, what shall we have for dinner?’ nights so I ended up making up a new salad. And it turned out really well – refreshing and tasty, and even Christmas themed!

I just love this salad and plan on taking it to some upcoming BBQs and Christmas functions as it suits the theme (red and green being Christmas colours!), is easy, appeals to many and is very healthy. It’s also nice and moist (without a dressing) which was lovely with our grilled chicken last night.

My kids were fighting over the last serve of it, too…

    This recipe is awesome, thanks for sharing. I love salads period, and with fruit it’s even better. I’ll have to try this simple salad soon. I remember as a child my mama would make apple salad at christmas. It was so good with rasins,peacans,apples,mayo and sometimes banana. Did anyone elses mother make this salad, if so did you like it?

    • Glad you like it, Karmaskeeper, and hope you enjoy it when you make it.

      The salad your mam made sounds like Wardorf salad which I’ve heard of but never tasted myself, although I think it is usually with walnuts rather than pecans.

    I’ve had this, I believe, only once. Which is a shame considering I liked the flavor. I think it was because since last year I’d been living with people who don’t really eat watermelon much during winter. This year, I have many friends I can share different recipes with and I’ll be sure to give this one a try as well!
