Growing up, a family summer picnic was not complete without Pinky Winky. Honestly, I don’t know how it got it’s name but that’s what we always called it. My aunt would always make this refreshing salad that is a hit with both the kids and the adults. This bright salad not only makes a nice side dish, but could even be served as a dessert.
