Everything taste is personal, a lot comes from our heritage: A Southerner and not too much on some of the ingredients mentioned in this recipe, egs. carrots, celery, our family recipe call for Finely grated cabbage, finely keyword Scallions chopped to taste size Tomatoes, cut to size-taste, smaller for us. Mayonnaise, only Hellman's will do for ours. Garlic salt to taste, only Lowry's for us; it becomes stronger with age,as does the amount of mayo, as the water is brought out by the salt. A moderate dash of vinegar - personal taste, I love Teragon That's it; and it's great - once perfected to taste, it's won over everybody's who's ever had it! Thanks to my Mother, Kathryn, for this one, as with all our beloved Southern cooking ways - simple and ever so delicious! People who've had our gravies made after frying meats, especially chicken, call it a food group.
