Sounds really good Billy! Would it be horrible if I switched the sweet pickle to dill???
You only live once . . . but if you do it right once should be enough!

Sounds good, Billy. Who's in charge of making it now, need I ask?
Retired and having fun writing cookbooks, tasting wine and sharing recipes with all my friends.

No Jean, no need to ask.

Sharon, I had always switched to dill relish, but the family doesn't like mine as well.

Sounds good Billy! I prefer macaroni salad over potato salad any family would disagree. I win sometimes though. Copied and saved.
Keep your mind wide open.
