This is one of those good stand-by potluck recipes that almost everyone likes and it makes a lot. It's also a great way to use up fresh produce from your garden. Adding the Fritos chips on top at the last minute gives the salad a nice salty crunch. I am not a fan of celery, but I actually don't mind it in this recipe. It's not a dominant flavor, with everything else going on. It uses bottled Catalina dressing, which I didn't have, but I made my own and it turned out even better than store-bought!
