This recipe was so delicious. A Great meal when served with a hot crusty roll. A friend served it at a luncheon & shared the recipe. I believe it originally came from a Martha Stewart booklet, however it has been tweaked just a little. Please adjust the quantity of ingredients to suit your own tastes and the size of servings you desire. Enjoy.

Very good restaurant-quality salad that was perfect for a warm summer evening. I made as listed excet to use blue cheese instead of feta.
What a wonderful meal. And easy to make. Delicious and oh so satisfying. I made this salad as part of PAC 2006 and am very glad I did. It came together in a hurry on a busy night after work. I followed the recipe exactly except I used seasoned rice wine vinegar in the dressing. And it fit in perfectly with my low-carb "get ready for dd's wedding diet." This will definitely become a permanent addition to my recipe collection.
