Tim and I came up with this recipe after having a deli salad that we thought we could make on our own...and better. This is a very versatile recipe. I have served it on a bed of greens and have added chopped grilled chicken on occasion. You can also add a can of quartered artichoke hearts and a jar of chopped roasted red bell peppers. ( Be sure to drain both.) It's a great day before shopping recipe as most ingredients are canned, bottled or frozen. Be prepared...this makes enough to take to a potluck. It makes approx. 18 cups.
