A great summer dish that pleases most everyone. You may substitute low fat products for an even healthier version.

- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1 1⁄2 cups chopped celery

I liked this, my DH did not. What does he know anyway? It does remind me of the macaroni salad found in the supermarket or deli, but it does not have the artificial taste of a mass produced product. I would make this again.
Well I personally did not care for this. It was too tart for my taste and for the taste of those I served it to. I guess its name suits it because it reminded me of the salad you get in the tubs at the super market.(the prior review goes to show it's all a matter of personal taste) Thanks anyhow!!
I loved it!
