    Lorraine of AZ's Note:

    I summered in the White Mountains of AZ for many years and for several of those years I enjoyed luncheons with a woman's group at the Torreon Country Club in Show Low, AZ. They served this salad every time, yet no one got tired of it because it was varied so many different ways. I love serving this salad, whether to my bridge group or to my DH. I have even served a meatless version as a side-salad at the evening meal. This salad is a perfect way to use up the leftovers lurking in your fridge!
