A dear friend shared this recipe with me years ago. Now it's my favorite dish to take to a church meeting, shower or any potluck event—it's always a hit. Whenever I serve this salad, people ask for the recipe. They find it hard to believe it's really made with buttermilk! —Juanita Hutto, Mechanicsville, Virginia

"This is a seriously brilliant recipe. My bridge club was amazed by how perfectly the flavor blended. I added 1 tsp of Knox gelatin to make it set up better. And it did."
