One of the nice things about this salad is how versatile it is. I've taken it to a potluck...to a square dance gathering...and to the field for my husband and the men during haying season! As part of a lunch, it goes well with cold meat, like roast beef, chicken or ham, and buns. We raised Limousin cattle on the exact quarter section where Barry's dad raised Black Angus for years. We don't have children—but two active bearded collies liven up the place plenty.
