My mom made this for her & I its awesome. I've been asked to make this and an Italian version of the salad for potlucks at work. It makes a lot but gets better as it sits. Veggies are endless depending on what you have on stock. We use fresh veggies no can or frozen and mushrooms are kind of iffy in this salad. we chop all veggies using a veggie chopper except the tomatoes.
