      A perfect salad for the hot summer months. There is no mayo or heavy dressing to go bad. It went very well with ham and roasted asparagus. The citrus in the dressing became lemon because that is what I had on had. The oil was reduced by about half. I used a red bell pepper and with the scallions this was a beautiful dish. I will be making this one again very soon.
