"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

This is a Boehm family favorite for Thanksgiving. It has been served for many years and I adopted it when I married Tim. It is excellent side dish with turkey and it is easy to make. The other nice thing is it can be made the day before Thanksgiving as compared to any other salad.

You can see it being served at our Thanksgiving dinner whenever we hosted it at our house.
