This recipe has become such a reliable standby for me that it's expected and welcomes by my friends. This dish can be served chilled for a salad or warm for a side dish. Either way it's always a hit. This can be made ahead and kept in the refrigerator for a few days.—Agnes Circello, Belle Rose, Louisiana
