Grape salad tastes like a dessert

By Susan Lowery

One of my grandma Ruth Spicer's card-playing friends used to make this Grape Salad and serve it on lettuce leaves.

I was very fond of it as a child and still am. It's one of those salads that tastes almost like a dessert.

This coleslaw recipe is one that was given to me and I tried it out on some friends and my dad. He was quite fond of it. I think he liked all coleslaw recipes.

He even put coleslaw on his sandwiches!
