Chasing after childhood food memories

April 20, 2011 - Dorma Tolson
It's time for Easter treats — colored eggs, chocolate bunnies and springtime desserts. This Easter I'm thinking of resurrecting an old family treat that has somehow fallen by the wayside — 24 hour salad. When I was a child, one of my aunts (can't remember which one specifically) used to make it for every special occasion that called for a family gathering. Our family's 24-hour salad had a sour-cream based dressing that I didn't especially care for, but I would pick out the fruit and coconut to eat. As I grew older, I came to appreciate the sweet and sour blend of the fruit and dressing, and now, since I haven't had it for years, I'm actually craving it. I've been searching for a recipe similar to by aunt's but I'm not sure I've found it. Anyone out there have a time-tested recipe for 24-hour salad with sour cream dressing? I'll keep looking, but if someone could help me out with a recipe for this tasty treat before Easter, I'd appreciate it.
