    ellie_'s Note:

    Children and adults love this simple-to-make Spring dinner salad. I made several changes to the original recipe which was printed in Bon Appetit (May, 1983).

      I made this without the chicken, and used a little more coarsely grated Parm for a heftier salad. Very simple, tasty dressing. Of course one could use any combo of seasonal vegetables and fruit. I left out the spinach and celery this time around, and went easy on the dressing. I'll make it again in one form or another.

      This is one hefty little salad. I made two minor substitutions: sugar snap peas instead of snow peas and strawberries instead of kiwi (the kiwi didn't look very good at the grocery store). I also served the salad on a bed of spinach leaves instead of adding the spinach to the salad. This one is excellent, Ellie. I thought the dressing added just the right enhancement to the overall flavor and was not overpowering. It will be my turn to host a "Lunch Bunch" luncheon at my house in August and this is what I will be serving. Thanks so much.
