This salad is usually the first to go at BBQs. Can be made a day ahead. Dressing is a little different. Cooking time represents chilling time.

I tried this recipe and thought it was very good! I didnt have everything for it, but I used everything I had. I also used ceasar salad dressing instead of french (because that is what we had on hand). Very good recipe, thanks for sharing it! (:
