Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
In 1977 this was served at our wedding as it was a classic festive salad.
Today a few ingredients have been changed but it can be still be served at dinner- as a dessert or for brunch. As it is made ahead, it is very convenient for a hostess. One can add berries just before serving.
