I first had this salad or a variation of it when my father was stationed with the Air Force at Rhein Main Air Base in the late 60's. We had a squadron picnic once a month from April through September. My mother got the recipe from one of the single men in Dad's squadron and started bringing it to all the picnics. I don't make it often, but when I do it goes really fast. This salad goes great with Brats or any grilled sausage as a side dish. It is also a great garnish with your favorite sausage or dog on a bun.
