This is a very quick and easy salad to make. The name is Swedish; it literally means 'Grandmother's Striped Salad.' It's 'striped' because the ingredients are colorful and julienned. My grandmother and I created this salad about 15 years ago so the measurements are estimated. Just use as much as you need or want.

I loved this recipe although I confess I didn't even add the dressing - I like my salad plain. I would also add more egg next time it was rather overpowering. Made it as a side dish for pork chops and it was quite filling. Read More
