It’s picnic and barbecue time, which means coming up with some new, quick side dishes to bring along to pot lucks or tuck into the picnic basket.
I’ve seen this salad in many variations and several different names, but this is the one that was passed on to us at my bridal shower years ago.
It’s great for picnics since there’s no may, so it won’t spoil as quickly and everyone in our family loves it!
