A nice light salad, that always gets many compliments when served.

I doubled the recipe, and thought the dressing was too abundant. I`m sure I will make this again, but will use half the amount of dressing, as once the lettuce wilts into it, the result is quite the soupy mess! Still a great recipe. I followed it exactly, something I rarely do! :)
