A good friend of mine who is also an excellent cook served this elegant but very easy-to-make salad at a luncheon years ago. She shared her recipe and I've been using it with great success ever since. It is delicious and everyone who tries it loves it! It's a great brunch or luncheon entree and also is good on a buffet table. It's an easy recipe to double and if you're asked to bring a salad, it travels well and is easy to assemble. I always make extra dressing for the table.
