This is my attempt at duplicating a salad I had recently at a local restaurant. I was sitting there eating the salad and writing down all the things I could identify in it and here is the end result. I used Martha Stewarts' Dijon Vinaigrette as the dressing and it tasted just like the salad at the restaurant. A great salad to serve with grilled meat or fish.
