I shared this recipe with a friend a while back. Now we kid about who will make it when we're attending the same event! No matter who brings the salad, it's always a hit at get-togethers. -Doreen Storz Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania

"This is such a great tasting salad. It does not have that strong vinegar taste. Now when I go to potluck suppers I make sure I take it.
