    My sister gave me this recipe years ago, with a couple of changes, but it is absolutely the best salad. I omit the olives just because I'm not a fan of green olives. I also put the salad in a baked pie shell, add the chips and cheese on top and bake to warm through. The salad is fantastic as it is to eat with crackers or alone. Love this recipe!!!
