Purple Karen Salad

Here is another recipe mom and I did together, Purple Karen Salad. It is nice to have my mom cooking with me. I remember having this as a child and haven’t seen it since.

Purple Karen Salad is dedicated to moms sister, my aunt Karen who passed away Dec. 28th, 2015. She is sadly missed. Purple is color for Alzheimer’s disease. So, we put our passion into making this and dedicated it to Karen and all Alzheimer’s patients and families.
