Excellent flavors in this salad. I did add more veggies but made as written. Loved it on this humid day.

Having lost our A/C at the height of a heat wave, I was looking for a good meal with little cooking. This fit the bill very well and has a nice flavor profile. Did substitute sliced water chestnuts for the canned corn as I had none in the pantry.

YUM. I, too, used leftover grilled salmon for this and it was delicious! I don't think it lacked anything, I loved the dressing. I think I would like it even without the salmon!
