Delicious! Perfect to serve for a luncheon. This needs to chill for 2 hours before serving. The dressing is wonderful!

I added a little bit more of red bell pepper and mushrooms. I think I got too much parmesan dressing. When I tasted it, it was good. But 24 hours later, it is even more delicious. Thanks Kittencal :)
