We have a large family and try to get together as often as possible throughout the year. When we do get together most of our meals are in the form of buffet style potlucks, as it gives us a good opportunity to enjoy sampling the cooking of our various cooks and it also helps us spread out the work that is involved in feeding such a large group. I like to bring this salad because it is colorful, travels well and is well received!
