This is an absolutely delicious main dish salad that I found in my church cookbook. I don't know how I missed it for so many years! This salad is especially attractive when served in a large shallow bowl with the lettuces on bottom, and each ingredient in its own section on the top. You can just toss the dressing and mix the salad at the table right before eating. The ingredients are easy to substitute and the recipe is easily halved.
