I have been making this for years, and we usually took it camping because it is a 2 step process, and was easy to throw together the next day.
The recipe originally came from muy sisters employee cook book St Law Psychiatric Center Centenial Cookbook. The cook was JoAnn Whitford.
It's a really sweet salad, almost a dessert.
