Patriotic Salad

A simple salad that went well with a beans and rice dish. My mother and grandmother came over for a visit, and my mom made this salad. I think it was the first time she rolled lettuce and cut it confetti style 'cause she thought I was crazy when I explained it to her. I made it again the next week, but substitued spinach for the romaine, and only used strawberies as I was out of blueberries.

The little ones picked at the salad the first time it was made, so the second time I blended it up -- no one told them that pudding isn't green!
