This salad was so delicious! I did add one can of black beans to it and the pimento gave it a little extra something. Everyone that was over asked for the recipe, and all the kids that were there gobbled it up. This will become a regular for me, and is a fantastic addition to any meal.

This stuff is great. The first time I made it, I followed the recipe exactly. The second time,(and every time after!) I have used olive oil rather than veg oil; and apple cider vinegar instead of white... (and a full tablespoon of black pepper to contend with the sweetness.) Yummy!

The only thing I changed was the amount of sugar-I used 1/4 cup and it was great. If you take it anywhere, be prepared with copies of the recipe!

This has been a popular recipe in our family for several decades. The only change I would strongly recommend is to cut the sugar in half- 1/2 cup (or less). I add green pepper and 1/4 t celery seed. My kids even ate it when they were little.

I made this earlier today and it is "marinating" as we speak. I too used evoo and red wine vinegar and only used 2 tbsp of sugar (and it's still sweet). One cup would make my teeth fall out. Added the black beans and I am also going to add some fresh basil to it tonight just before I serve it. Yum - thanks for the recipe.

I thought this was going to be really weird but I tried it and it was delicious. Brought it to a potluck and it was devoured.

This is an old family favorite of ours. It's colorful, tangy and clean tasting, and it's always a favorite at potlucks. We even make it at Thanksgiving and Christmas, and our friends always ask for care packages.
