This is straight out of a Betty Crocker Cookbook from 1985. I use to make it for potlucks in the summertime, but it is good ALL year long! (UPDATE! Based on first review, if you feel it needs a spice boost, try 1/4 tsp Old Bay in it)

Oh my YUM! I didn't have any Old Bay, so I improvised with 2 tsp each of pepper and seasoned salt, and the only shredded vegetable matter I could find was broccoli slaw mix. This was light, refreshing and very tasty. Toasted almond slivers would be a good addition. I will definitely make it again. I'm sure it would be excellent with tuna or shredded chicken also.

Nutritious salad. Not very exciting but quite acceptable. Next time I'd add some additional seasonings.
