Recipe by Agnes DiFonzo

This recipe is from a computer software program that I cannot find. I made this for a picnic and it was completely devoured! It's really excellent.

Top Review by Cilantro in Canada

Excellent. I used water in place of the oil. I also used fresh mushrooms and regular cooking onions in place of the green onions. I added the cilantro directly to the mixture and marinated it along with everything else. This was an easy salad to make and tasted wonderful. Thanks for the recipe.
