A recipe that I learn from my wife's aunt Barb.

Top Review by Tinkerbell

I honestly have to say I didn't think this salad would be a huge hit because DH & DD don't eat cheese or Ranch dressing. But to my surprise they LOVED it! I can only guess that the sugar in the dressing & the cheese did not overpower the rest of the ingredients. I almost used a red onion instead of white but decided to go with the recipe. I'm really glad I did. I might mix it up in the future for color, but will definitely be making this one again. DS wasn't home for dinner tonight but I know when he gets home this salad will be loved by him as well. Thanks for sharing your family recipe, Jimmy! Made & enjoyed for Fall 2008 Pick A Chef.
