I made this salad for a ladies group of about 50 women. We are a service group and the Executive helped. One of the men asked if the salad could be made with another dressing because he didn't care for the one I was putting on. He ended up taking what was left of the salad home. All the ladies (and I mean all) ate everything on their plate. I have had to reprint the recipe several times for the ladies. My mother still talks about that great salad.
