This unusual sounding recipe is gone in a hurry to any event I take it to! Not overly sweet,or sour,it is a perfect combination of flavors sure to tantalize the taste buds. Every time I make it I am asked for the recipe. You can make it your own by adding any meats or vegetables you desire. Small chunks of cheddar cheese is tasty as well. A recipe you can make your own by playing with what your family likes. The dressing may sound odd, but very good indeed. I originally found this recipe in an old Church cook book many years ago. Keep in mind it is best after an overnight refrigerator stay.
