This is one of my favorite salads to make for a gathering. It can be assembled early and just add the almonds and vinegrette at the last minute and toss. I got the recipie from my sister. It is one of her most recommended recipies. I can even get my carnivourous son to eat this because it's a little sweet :) Honestly, the number of servings is just a guess. Sorry.

I've made this several times, and I keep forgetting to tell you how much we love it! With Spring coming, and Easter get togethers, I'll be making this for sure. Thanks!

I made this for company and we all loved it! Served it with an Asian marinated flank steak, and it was great. I left out the celery (husband doesn't like it) but left the rest the same. I will make this often. By the way, the 4 of us ate all of the salad. Thanks!

This recipe is definitely on the top of our list now. It's light and refreshing. I left out the chopped celery and green onions because didn't have them on hand. Awesome flavour!
