Recipe by Myrna 2

I got this off another site. Really good. Perfect on a hot summer day. Served it with Chuck's Salmon cassarole (#61084). Hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

Not particularly impressive. This was ok, but probably not something I'll make again. It seemed lacking in the flavor department. I made a few adjustments. I used rice instead of pasta to fit my husbands wheat free diet, and omitted the lettuce as it sounded strange for this type of salad and we added some mayo before eating it.
