The ladies at our old church always made this for dinners. When I asked for the recipe, they gave it to me on an old recipe card, written in beautiful cursive script. When reading it, I thought the mix of ingredients sounded odd, but it is absolutely delcious. It's a wonderful green salad that is wonderful for company. It's also good as a main course with a chicken breast on top. Very adaptable - you can add other fruit, too. Strawberries and blueberries.

Joy, this is an excellent salad. I've enjoyed this at a friend's house several times. We use a tarragon salad dressing with it, a nice complement. Thanks for posting . . . . Janet
