I use this recipe when making my rose cake, my hydrangea cake, or any cake that I want the frosting to be able to hold its shape! This makes quite a bit, but can be refrigerated quite easily. And yes, I sometimes use half crisco/half butter. This recipe is SWEET. Super sweet.
"WHEN I was a child, my mother often served this salad with multicolored marshmallows sprinkled on top, much to my delight. The marshmallows added a touch of sweetness that really complemented this salad's tangy flavor.
The hot dressing poured over this salad slightly wilts the greens without cooking them. Chilling the salad lets the flavors develop. Serve as a side dish, or use instead of lettuce to top vegetarian barbecue. Other greens to try in this recipe: Swiss chard, beet greens, or flat-leafed kale.
