Rice-a-Roni Salad

I lived in Lodi, California from 1978-1990. Mama was raised there and her parents had settled there. After Grandpa died, Grandma bought herself a little grandma house and lived there until she ended up in a nursing home with Alzheimer's. I love my Grandma so much and she was the determining factor for my moving there in my very early 20's.

Lodi was then a small town situated between Sacramento and Stockton. Between Lodi and Stockton there was a small zoo and lovely shaded park called Micke Grove. We spent many lovely afternoons there with large and small groups of friends and family. I have memories of going there even as a very small girl!

At one family reunion, my Aunt Karen made this wonderful salad that has become part of my summer salad repertoire.
