This is one of my top-treasured recipes of Mom's; though the ingredients are simple, it is truly a labor of love because of all the dicing and chopping, which can take a surprisingly long time. (One of the keys is chopping the pickle, celery, olives fairly small--pickle esp.) You'll enjoy this if you have a taste for tangy things; my mom usually served it with barbecued chicken & corn for the perfect summertime dinner. It's also a dish that seems to get better the longer it's in the fridge (within reason), so you can make it a day or 2 ahead.
