It is interesting the creations you come up with when you have nothing to make to eat. This appetizer is so versatile as a starter or just as a salad. You can do so much to play with it too. I got this one day when a bunch of us girls that worked at Unitog in Bell Gardens, CA back in the late 80's. We all threw in what we had and came up with this delicious concoction. It is now a favorite.
