This is one of my favorite cookbooks "Company's Coming Cookbook" Salads by Jean Pare c 1984.
I have made this recipe many times and even taken it to a Birthday BBQ. It was well liked and even had a request for the recipe.
Great summer time picnic or BBQ recipe. We enjoy it and hopefully you will as well.
