My whole family really likes this salad. I have taken the salad to work pot lucks and it was well liked there also.

MY REVIEW

A wonderful summer salad. I have been making this salad, with my garden's help, since I found this recipe in 2002. I lost all my Quick Cooking magazines, this website is an excellent resource for me.
