Rendezvous Salad

This salad combines exotic Asian flavors with a little bit of American sweetness. It includes Asian dressing and seaweed with strawberries, blueberries and white chocolate chips that gives it a nice color and sweet taste. Vandal pride is all about Vandal unity. Bringing two different nations or cultures together to work as one and in this case, bring out a nice flavor. This Rendezvous Salad would be a nice side dish on your Thanksgiving table or great for your “tailgate” party at the Thanksgiving bowl.
