I wanted to do something different as a vegetable side dish. It was Thanksgiving, so I got a bunch of root vegetables and roasted them. They were a hit and are now a staple at our holiday table. I cook them during the year sometimes, as well.
Several steps build to the final salad crescendo. Chopped apples and bananas marinate in pineapple juice, and kiwi and strawberries are sliced. Then everything is mixed into peach pie filling and spooned into a beautiful serving bowl.
