I was handed a bowl of this delightful salad when, after watching my daughter's kids, she sent it home for our supper. It's a nice "payback" feeling when Hannah does that! She said it was Debbie Holley's recipe, so I thought "delicious," based on the raves from Hannah's husband who goes to a men's Bible study at Holley's house. Debbie serves the guys dinner! Learn where that comes from when you listen to the Woman to Woman® show we did on January 15, "Peace of Mind: Get It!" Your response was over the top, so I knew you'd like one of her recipes.
