    This is a recipe that I adopted in the Recipezaar recipe give-away of Feb 2005 and made only a couple minor changes. I like it. Preparation time does not include 30 minutes chilling time.

      Great salad! I didn't measure out the lemon juice (I just squeezed a whole, small lemon) and I replaced some of the cream cheese with mozzarella because I didn't have enough of either for a full recipe. This was nice and light, but also filling enough because of the cheese. A lovely summer salad...thanks for posting!
