I liked this a lot, and it was very quick to make. I used only 1/3 cup of mayo, and I used the reduced-fat type. I think it was enough dressing, and it reduced the fat content of this salad quite a bit. Thanks for sharing!
One of my very favorites. My Mom Mom used to make this for me when I was little. I bet I make it once a month or so. I only use a speck of mayonnaise as the fruit makes some of it's own juice.
This was so easy to make and it tasted so good with lettuce. I loved it!
