We have been making this salad since the recipe appeared in 1994! Delicious, light, refreshing. Never went back to salads using oil! I did quit using the cornstarch a few years back simply because it adds no flavor, and seems to make the brine a little cloudy after a few days. (And, I use canned vegetables because we like the texture better.)
