Whether I make it for a Sunday dinner, a company dinner or a covered-dish dinner, people like the blend of flavor in this salad. The ladies ask for the recipe...the men ask me to make sure their wives get a copy of it! Our house is on the edge of town. It has lots of room for gardening (my husband, my parents and grandparents, all lived on farms). I'm a second-grade teacher with two boys, 5 and 2, who "help" Mommy cook.
