What a great, refreshing salad! I left out the walnuts (allergies), and used Newman's Own balsamic dressing, and it was still fantastic. Tripled the recipe, except for dressing. Made the night before, and refrigerated. Every once in a while I turned the container upside down so the dressing would distribute. Took to a cook-out and it was the first dish to be completely empty. Congrats on a great recipe!!
