I have eaten this since I was little. I am 35 now and still enjoy it. Try it with a spoonful of miracle whip on top. May sound weird but very tasty! I promise.

Pretty good base you can put in what ever you like ,vegatable,fruit ,nuts. I've tried zuccinni,pineapple,almonds. and it was very good .Used miracle whip for a topping on the side

I've been hunting for this recipe for a while, an elderly friend used to bring something similar to potlucks. It is a little unusual but quite refreshing. I prefer it without the walnuts. It is ...

Well, I didn't give this a five star, just because I have a hard time chewing the raw veggies. That's just me though! My grandma made this recipe almost every holiday. It is a beautiful dis...
