Everyone who has tried this loves it. I came up with this recipe as an alternative to pasta salad. I buy all the ingredients at Trader Joes. Sometimes I get a real craving for this salad. Its tastey, crunchy and healthy. Yum!

Easy to make and pack for lunches! Based on another review, I substituted Kalamata olives (used half the amount) and used broth instead of water. Delicious!
