I've made this salad for years and it's always requested that I make it for parties and get-togethers. Very popular with my family and friends.

i haven't made this yet, but tasted it this last week when my aunt made it, she used catalina dressing and it was wonderful. she told me she has also made it using ranch and salsa mixed together instead of catalina dressing and was good too.
