Your Basic Tossed Salad

Recipe by Little Bee

This is Rachael Ray's recipe and pretty much the salad I grew up on coming from an Italian family. The portions can be increased for larger groups. I love this simple and healthy salad. It is a perfect salad to serve with Italian food!

Thanks for posting this Rachael Ray salad Little Bee. Very nice. We enjoyed it very much. The dressing was basic but nice and light. I would mix it ahead let chill and shake again next time to meld the flavors for longer. Made as written for some hungry men. Thumbs up all around. Enjoy! ChefDLH
