This is a wonderful main dish salad that my whole family enjoys. The recipe came from my mother-in-law and it is a summer staple in our house! A very refreshing dish that I like to serve with warm crusty rolls. Great for using up leftover chicken (I've been known to buy a ready-to-eat deli chicken just so I have an excuse to make this!). Enjoy!

A very tasty and different recipe! I made this exactly as posted, using green Sicilian olives and fresh green beans from the garden. In order to serve 4-6, I think you should serve this on a bed of mixed greens too make a full meal out of it. Thanks for sharing. Made for Fall PAC 2011.
