Recipe by Leslie in Texas

Another recipe I clipped from a magazine almost thirty years ago. I've made it for several gatherings and it's always well received. It makes a pretty presentation and can be served with assorted crackers, melba rounds, or pretzel dippers. It also can be made several weeks ahead.
