A simple cold salad that is nice for the summertime! I found the basis for this recipe in a magazine (I clipped it awhile ago, but I don't remember which one), but I wasn't a fan of some of the ingredients listed. So I made up my own version with these ingredients that I had at my home. I think you can alter it any way you'd like. Enjoy!
