My Mom taught me to make this simple, delicious salad many years ago. It has been our family favorite for 3 generations now. Every time I share it at a cook out, someone always ask for the recipe. I have been told the secret is in the dressing, I'm not sure. So I thought I would share it here! I sometimes change it up and add a small can of drained, flaked, tuna! Yum! Hope you will enjoy it!
