This isn't quite a traditional salad, but this side dish was good as a side or on it's own. It was pretty sweet, and could even been used a dessert. I ate this for a side to lunch, but then I ate another one for dessert the next day. Using baby food was easy, rather than using an apricot and having to puree it yourself. The pineapple chunks were a really good match for the peach and apricot flavor.
This recipe comes from the cookbook Storebought to Homemade by Emyl Jenkins.
