Our church has dinners for this, that and funerals. While my Mother was still alive, the church would always call her when they needed salads (etc.) I found this recipe and after that, that's all they wanted. There really wasn't a name for it (other than "make that salad"), so the next call was for a funeral, there came the name, "funeral salad". When my Mother went to heaven, and we where having the dinner, I made this salad, cause know one else would. It was the last laugh for my Mom, cause she said no one would make it for Her.
