My husband and I went to a retirement luncheon for his uncle. I brought this salad as our contribution. It was so easy to make and had plenty of color, texture and great flavor. I recommend keeping it in the refrigerator because it tastes best to me when it is ice-cold. Thanks for sharing another great recipe.
