This is a wonderful salad to serve for a luncheon get-together...and quite easy to make. Your company will be so impressed with this delicious salad. The dressing can be made a day ahead, and also can be doubled, for more dressing

This was awesome!! I made it for our church ladies annual salad supper last night and it was the only salad completely cleaned out!!! I only had iceberg lettuce, but I think a darker lettuce would have been prettier. I tossed everything together and it did get a little soggy, but the flavour was still incredible. I also left out the onion flakes (didn't have any; and in the first batch of dressing, I used a bit of fresh chopped onion and it was WAY too oniony for my liking!) and processed the dressing in the blender. It was just wonderful. I could have eaten the whole bowl myself!!
