Found this recipe on Allrecipes.com by Nancy. The dressing is unique, and I've changed the veggies to our taste. Please feel free to play with them, but keep the dressing...it's KILLER.

this makes a beautiful salad. i made it in a trifle bowl so you could see all the colorful veggies. the dressing was like the icing on the cake
After reading rave reviews at allrecipes.com and here, I made this salad for Easter dinner and it was a disappointment. Even though I crisped the lettuce ahead of time, the shredded lettuce went limp almost immediately. The dressing was tasty - but I increased the garlic, curry and Parmesan or it would have been bland. If I made it again, I would use torn Romain lettuce instead of shredded Iceberg.
Very good! I made as directed and really enjoyed it! Served with a chile relleno bake, it was just right. Thank you! Made for the Zaar Stars game.
