This wonderful salad was a family joint effort. My mom & aunts would make this together. It's a favorite at our holiday picnics. It is easy but takes lots of prep time dicing and chopping however, well worth the effort. I have added my own touches and make the night before so flavors marry. Great served on hot summer days. It's a really large salad can be enjoyed up to three days after being made. But trust me it wont last that long. Enjoy for your next holiday.
