Recipe by AliDee

This recipe brings back such wonderful memories of picnics when I was a child with my grandmother and her sisters. While a member of the Cranberry Township Pennsylvania Women's Club I would make 30 lbs at time for a charity craft fair each fall. So, feel free to play around with the measurements of the oil, sugar and vinegar...for years I have made this without a recipe. This salad can be served cold or at room temp.
