This made very generous servings and was tasty to boot. I added diced purple onion, chopped pimentos, and fresh parsley. I thought the use of a vingarette/ mayo combo was different and made for an easy lunch. Made for Pick A chef Spring 2014.

I made 2 cups and added chopped green onions. I don't care for Miracle Whip so went with good old Hellmans mayo. It made a satisfying great tasting lunch and I have enough for another day. Yum. Made for PAC, Spring 2014.
