Miss Elma was my Mom's best friend. A high school French teacher who taught for 60 years, she was well-known for her silver upswept hairdo, perfect makeup, high heels, amazing jewelry, and beautiful outfits. You know, your stereotypical French teacher, with lots of class and with a heart of gold.

A long-time widow with grown children, Miss Elma often graced our holiday table, usually bringing along this popular salad. C'est magnifique! =^..^=
