We eat this salad at least once a week now that it's hot out. I don't make the dressing - we just use bottled.

What a delicious recipe! I made everything exactly to directions with the exception of the avocado - I don't like them. I might add halved grape tomatoes to this the next time I make it. This is going to be a summertime salad favorite I can tell. Thanks for posting this recipe and joining our recipe swap!
