The Montreal Gazette printed this recipe and attributed it to Mom's Best Crowd-Pleasers by Andrea Chesman. I hope to make this soon.

Very simple and whipped it together in no time. I appreciate that there isn't an excessive amount of oil. Perfect for a quick weeknight meal (as we enjoyed it over greens/baby spinach), potluck, etc. Used fresh herbs from the garden. Love the crunch of the celery, too. For color, red onion was used. Reviewed for Veg Tag/May.

Great salad, quick and healthy. Since the dressing is so simple, I found you really need the onion and herbs in there to make it all work. I definitely wouldn't leave the onion out, but any combo of fresh herbs would be great. Thanks for posting!
