I got this recipe from my best friend from high school.  She lives in upstate New York so we now communicate by phone and e-mail.  When we talked on Thanksgiving, she said she had made this salad and that she likes it because she can do it ahead of time.  Her husband likes to cook, and he doesn't want her in the kitchen when he's working.
