Five Cup Salad

Back in the late 60's I had this salad at a friend's house and had to ask about it. The cook smiled and said it was called FIVE CUP salad because it has just five ingredients that you use just one cup each. I made it soon after and was not satisfied with the "one" cup. I tweaked it and to this day still make it my way. Try it and see what you think!
