    The Wallaces's Note:

    Unique picnic side dish. I've made this several times when bringing a side dish to summer barbecues. Every time, there's at least one person that asks me for the recipe. The original recipe also calls for 1 cup chopped onions, but I leave this out.

      Nice salad. I halved the recipe and chose to grate the carrots and omitted the nuts. Made for Everyday Holiday Tag game. :)

      Great tasting salad, this! I was going to cut back on the amount I made, but then used the water instead of the chicken broth & gifted half of it to my vegetarian son & DIL, & they were thrilled with it! The only small things I did differently was to [1]shred the carrot & [2]use lemon pepper instead of the usual S&P! Another time I MIGHT include half a cup of diced sweet onion, but that doesn't change the fact that the salad, as you have it is very nice! Thanks for a great keeper recipe!
