This was my mother's recipe that she cut from a magazine back in the sixties. It always made any meal special. I enjoy freshly ground black pepper on this salad. Veggie amounts can vary according to availability and personal tastes. Prep time varies. I guess-timated figuring my slow chopping time. Cooking time is chilling time.
