Recipe by Happy Hippie

This is a wonderful main-dish salad. Perfect for summer when you don't want to heat up the house. This recipe came from my local grocer.

We loved this. I followed the recipe other then I didn't have any eggs cooked so omitted them. Loved the swiss cheese in this. I used ranch and hubby used thousand island dressing and we both really enjoyed this. Made this for lunch and will eat the rest tomorrow for lunch.
