This is one of my favorite recipes for summer, and one of my most requested, as well.
This was a dynamite salad. Yowie!!! Very fresh tasting and a nice mixture of flavors and colors. My husband and I felt like grilling and we wanted something different and unique. This one fits that description to a tee. We are having out-of-town friends over for the weekend and are going to make this one again. Thanks Nurse Di.
