Jill Wagner's Scandinavian Salad

Hallmark star Jill Wagner shares a special recipe with us that her family serves during the holidays. Make it while watching Jill in her latest Hallmark movie, Christmas Wishes & Mistletoe Kisses. “This is my cousin Lorie’s famous salad she makes for Christmas. My family is German and loves the vinegar. It makes a very pretty red and green dish at Christmas and is something you can make the night before, as it needs 24 hours to sit in the juice.”
