This is a chilled salad we take to potlucks at church or bbq's and so forth. This recipe has very deep roots where I live and it has been made by everyon, for a long period of time. we have staunch german heritage here and the food goes way back. I am not from this area but I am in kin to it and I reap the benefits of the recipes that come from it.
I don't know that this recipe comes from that but it is from them.
