Summer Salad

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Lesli MomOf2

This is another of our favorite summer recipes. My nephew has loved this since the age of 5, and is great to take on picnics or to pitch-ins. It's supposed to be served cold, but I usually have a bowl before putting it into the refrigerator.

***Made for My 3 Chefs*** This salad was very intriguing to me. I omitted the tomatoes, just a preference thing. I also subbed the green pepper with red pepper. Again, a preference thing. I also added cucumber. I was a little concerned about putting mayo in a warm salad, but it worked out fine. Next time, though, I'm going to maybe jazz up the mayo when I add it. That is the wonderful thing about salads, they are very versatile. Thanks for posting this recipe.
