Made this for the owner of our company for lunch along with Cowboy Biscuits (#103701). He thought it was just perfect, i thought it was just perfect, so this recipe gets 5 stars. I did take the liberty of using half black forest ham and half maple glazed turkey from the local deli. I also mixed in some finely chopped romaine & iceberg to the salad then served over butter lettuce. Again, perfect! Thanks for a great recipe that I will use over and over again!
