Holiday meals can be heavy. To ease the pain of having too much protein and carbohydrates be sure to have a unique and tasty vegetable salad. This salad was a favorite recipe of my Aunt Helen and she always brought it to our family meals. I love the sweet, simple vinaigrette. After that big Thanksgiving Day meal, this is the leftover I grab out of the fridge to chomp on when I finally get hungry again!

Good Green Salad 

3 cups small pieces of cauliflower 
1 10-ounce bag frozen green peas 
1 can shoe-peg corn (drained) 
2 cups finely chopped celery 
1 green onion 
1 small jar pimentos 

Mix together and add to vegetables: 

3/4cup sugar 
1/2 cup vinegar 
1/2 cup oil 
1 tsp salt  

Toss vegetables well, and refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving.
