This salad made a wonderful light meal for a warm summer evening. Even DH, who tends not to favor salad as a main dish, complimented me on the meal. I didn't have any celery & used Splenda instead of the sugar in the dressing (I find that no one in the family notices it when I sneak that in). Otherwise I folowed the recipe exactly. I threw some dried cranberries into the portion I saved to take to work tomorrow. Thanks, Trisha!
