This is a holiday tradition for my husband's family. I'm told the recipe comes from his great-aunt. While I was quite skeptical after hearing the list of ingredients, they blend wonderfully for a delicious "salad". I have affectionately named it "Green Gunk" because that's what it looks like! My hubby's family fights over the leftovers. Prep time doesn't include chilling time, so plan ahead...I've been instructed by my hubby's family that this is best made the night before serving.
