Personal Notes:
My family grew up running rivers in the Western U.S. This salad was always a big hit on any river trip and it doesn’t pose the food poisoning risks that many mayo based salads do. This one can sit out at the pot luck until the preacher has done his entire sermon and there are no worries.
