This looks much like the "Coke Salad" my mother-in-law makes. Her recipe doesn't call for mayo, and the nuts are always skipped (too many people in the family don't like them).

I think I've read in one of my Texas cookbooks that there is a similar recipe using Dr. Pepper.

Coke Salad sounded strange to me at first, but it's pretty good. We don't have it often, but when we do it is enjoyed.
