I adapted this from a salad recipe I received from the American Dairy Association. It's filling and nice for a light meal with a bowl of warm soup. I love that this salad is so flexible in allowing substitutions based on what you have on hand. Fat free and low fat dairy products have successfully been used in this. I try to avoid adding any additional salt to our meals, so you may want to sample the dressing before serving and see if you prefer to add some.
