I don't know if this is where it originates, but our Thanksgiving company that was visiting from Portugal made this salad and it was awesome, simply put. I only knew what was in the salad, not the amounts, so I just eyeballed the amounts.

This sounds really strange, but it's REALLY good. It doesn't taste nearly as salty as you'd think it would, but I love love love the flavor. As easy as this is, I'll definitely be making it often. Thanks!
