HISTORY NOTE: My Aunt Glen (Cooper) Parrott obtained the recipe from a Chef coworker at a restaurant she used to work at. The Chefs name was Millie who invented the Millie salad recipe. Aunt Glen gave the recipe to her mother which is my Grandmother Frances Cooper and to another aunt named Wanda who married into the Cooper family. Aunt Wanda always made the Millie Salad which was always a traditional dish for the entire Cooper family get together family dinners including Thanksgiving and Christmas family dinners. The recipe is at least 43 years old. The Cooper family is my father’s family.
