This is an amazing salad and an old family recipe from my MIL. This one is special...I promise! Once you try it, you'll be hooked. I'm not too keen on mayonnaise but I LOVE this salad. In the summer, you can make it with garden vegetables. If you're like me, you'll be tempted to leave out the sugar - don't! It brings out the flavor and juices of the veggies and transforms the dressing. Note: Cooking time is chill time.
