Recipe by Leslie in Texas

This is one of our favorite summer salads--add a mixed fruit or veggie salad and some crusty rolls and you have an easy, do-ahead meal! This also would be a good luncheon salad--think showers, graduation parties, reunions, pot lucks, etc. Originally from a May 1993 Bon Appetit.
