“I am not a fan of mayonnaise-based salads, although this recipe only uses three tablespoons of mayo and therefore passes the Cookgirl seal of approval. Mom cut this recipe out of a womens' magazine over twenty years ago for me. I've modified the salad over the years to make it healthier and tastier.”
