This has been a family favorite for over 30 years! It is simple to make and perfect for a potluck or summer BBQ. In fact, whenever I make it for a crowd, I receive numerous requests for the recipe. The recipe can be easily cut in half for a smaller crowd, but it does reheat well in the microwave, so your leftovers won't last long!
