"I made this for a Memorial Day picnic. It's definitely not your typical veggie picnic salad. This had a unique flavor that we didn't really expect from a mayonnaise vegetable salad. Even so, it was quite tasty. We all felt like it needed a little bit of salt added to the recipe. Other than that it was very good."
