I've received loads of compliments in this crunchy salad that is often on our Sunday dinner menu. It's also a great salad to take to a potluck. The flavors blend so nicely that we never tire of this good old standby recipe. -Melody Mellinger, Myerstown, Pennsylvania

"I've been making this over and over for the last 7 years (since seeing it printed in Taste of Home) and everyone still asks me to make it for various gatherings. Tastes better and fresher than what is offered at the deli counter."
