I made this last night and I have second thoughts about serving it for Christmas dinner. I researched too late but found this recipe on Cooks.com and it called for 1 Tbs of mayonnaise not 1/2 cup. I'm afraid this salad is ruined. Taste of Home should double check their recipes before printing them in their cookbooks!
