I got this from my best friend. Everyone we know "begs" her to make it. It's a bit time consumming, but well worth it.

My Mother-in-Law has made this salad for years and she always gets asked for the recipe when she takes it somewhere. There are a few minor changes though... only used 12 oz of vermicelli, 4 Tbsp vegetable oil, 1 Tbsp accent season, 2 Tbsp Lowrys season salt, 3 Tbsp "real-lemon" lemon juice for overnight marinade, and then chop into VERY small pieces all veggies 1/2 c each celery and yellow onion, 1 bell pepper , 1-7oz jar green pimento olives drained, Add 1-1/2 C Hellmans mayo and 1 Cup grated cheddar cheese. Delicious!!!
