This was my mother's recipe that she cut from a magazine back in the sixties. It always made any meal special. I enjoy freshly ground black pepper on this salad. Veggie amounts can vary according to availability and personal tastes. Prep time varies. I guess-timated figuring my slow chopping time. Cooking time is chilling time.

This was a very nice salad. It couldn't be easier to prepare. We just had this as our main course. The only thing I did different was to cut the recipe in half. Will make again. Thanks Kat's Mom. Bullwinkle.
