A Salad Recipe

I came across this recipe in the salad section of the 1993 First Baptist Church of Richmond Texas cookbook.  I didn't tag it as a recipe on my "to make" list, but then I saw America's Test Kitchen testing it on their Instagram account.  Maybe I need to try it.  It IS a salad afterall.

1&1/4 cups sugar, divided
1&1/2 sticks butter, melted
