Sometime simple is just better! This went together super easy. I used red onion, since we like that in salads. This is the perfect accompaniment to a summer barbecue dinner! Thanks for sharing. Made for Culinary Quest 2014.

Very good! My husband is diabetic & I substituted Splenda for the sugar. It works great. We`ll have this salad often.
