This was a recipe was given to me by my Aunt when our families went to the beach in North Carolina and only had access to a local farm stand for veggies. My aunt said we needed a quick and easy salad that would go with our summer barbequed dinner. This salad does not really need refrigeration and is easy so it's great for picnics!
