I entered this recipe in the West Virginia Senior Olympics in 2013 and it took "1st place" in the Salad competition. More recently, I doubled it and made it for our neighbors and their moving crew for their lunch, a total of about 10, and it was devoured. We used it as printed. It's a great "meal" salad. It's a "keeper", for sure!

Such an unusual combination of ingredients! We don't care for onions, so I substituted 1/2 cup of dried pineapple pieces. Its really quite delicious, and I always receive compliments on it. People always seem surprised that they like it so much. I give out the recipe all the time!
