I know I've had this before and it is yummy! Quick question: I can't recall do you prepare the pudding first or just use the dry mix? Now I'm craving this...more things to add to my grocery list Innocent .

Hi Sharon,just use the pudding mix dry.This is good,I made some for Thanksgiving because my husband can't eat cranberries because of a medication he is taking,so he was happy with this.Sharon thanks I should have specified with the pudding I've changed the recipe to reflect this.

This salad must be making a "comeback" I saw it in a magazine a week or so ago.  Then again it was in the doctors office, the magazine could have been 40 years old!

It was made in the 70's and it's origin isn't real clear,some say it was developed by the Chef who worked at the Watergate hotel then some others say it was their recipe.It is refered to as an American classic .I worked for a Dr. and I have to say some of the magazines in his office were bordering on  collectibles and antiques.lol lol lol
