This is a classic side dish! My mother had made this for years, but not quite like Paula Deen does it. If you are looking for an easy and delicious salad to whip up for dinner or a neighborhood gathering...look no further. This is perfect for those summertime picnics and BBQs.
For Paula Deen's original recipe, check out pauladeen.com or buy her Lady & Sons Savannah Country Cookbook.
This is a wonderfully simple, nutritious and delicious side dish! My mother made it just like this, minus the Cheddar cheese. Her's was wonderful, but I love the new addition. I am sure she will like it too.

I am excited to share another fabulous Paula Deen dish that is so easy to lighten up and make part of a healthy, balanced diet. If you have 15 minutes, you have time to throw this together. ENJOY!!
