This was a great tasting recipe. Different from a lot of other lunch salads. It was very filling and satisfying. Easy on the cook because it was easy to make. Definately another keeper in my cookbook. Thanks bert..

I served this salad for a 3 family picnic and everyone loved it, even the kids. I used the leftovers in a bean soup the next day and it was great too!

The flavor in this salad is really great. I didn't have any asaigo cheese, but I did have a package of feta that needed to be used up that I tossed in. The second day I had a cooked chicken breast that needed using up so I tossed it in the salad, it made a very filling lunch. I will be making this again and again.
