    So Cal Gal's Note:

    A quick, healthy salad with lots of flavor and crunch...and endless possible variations! (Adapted from the salad my family ate when I was growing up in San Diego--plus all of the salad bars I've been to ever since.) Note: Optional items not included in preparation time.

      I did this recipe up as a salad bar, since I really wanted my guests to include what they most enjoyed eating! Besides the regular ingredients listed, I included peas, corn, cauliflower, broccoli, red & yellow bell peppers, pistachios, almonds, pumpkin seeds, hard-cooked eggs, colby-jack cheese, sharp cheddar, feta, AND some homemade winter & cracked wheat croutons, as well as an aray of dressings! A bit of work (though enjoyable) & a big success, with the final bonus ~ The 2 of us had healthy salads for several days! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in the current Pick-A-Chef]
