Another great dish ~ I did not have celery seed, so added a bit of celery salt and omitted the regular salt from the dressing. This came out beautifully and will become one of our families new favorites. The slivered almonds are a very nice finishing touch! Thanks AuntSana ~ made for PAC FALL 2009!

My family LOVES this salad. Sometimes I add leftover grilled chicken to make it a one-dish meal, perfect in the summer with some crusty bread.

What a wonderful spring salad! This was truly awsome! The whole pile of kids at my house gobbled this little delight up! And, I must admit the dressing was just such a nice touch! Thanks so much for the great salad recipe, it was wonderful!
