What a great summer salad! I have made it twice and my family inhaled it. I did add a few extra veggies I had laying around( cucumber, tomato etc.) I really liked the extra crunch these gave to the salad but thats just me. This salad is a full meal with just some garlic bread sticks or rolls. Will be making again and again.
Yummy salad!! Very quick and easy to make with loads of color and taste. I did add 1 tsp of sugar to the dressing and tossed in 1/4 cup fresh, shredded Parmesan cheese. My family loved this salad and I will definitely be making it again. Thanks for this wonderful, easy recipe...it is definitely a keeper!!

That baby in the picture...yep that's me some eon's ago...not even gonna tell you how many. I live in the Sierra Mountains bordering a National Forest with my chickens and goats. My wonderful husband who passed on October 10,2006 was extremely ill with several terminal illnesses and is sorely missed.

Baking is my fun...pies, cookies, and making candy. Don't do cakes, nobody here eats them. But make a cheesecake and it disappears. Gardening is a hobby, and love to run out and pick fresh vege's and herbs to add to my meals. Besides my dogs, cats, fish, 3 goats, I have a really good collection of chickens, and the ladies present me with a steady supply of fresh eggs, and fertilizer for the garden. Food preservation and storage is a passion. <a href="http://s45.photobucket.com/albums/f95/Chabear01/garden/?action=view¤t=cabbage06.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i45.photobucket.com/albums/f95/Chabear01/garden/cabbage06.jpg" border="0" alt="garden pics"></a> <a href="http://s45.photobucket.com/albums/f95/Chabear01/garden/?action=view¤t=mycallalilliesinbackyard.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i45.photobucket.com/albums/f95/Chabear01/garden/mycallalilliesinbackyard.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a> As you might be able to tell from my name I collect bears, ceramic and stuffed (Started with one on the Birth of my first grandchild) now have over 600 bears and no room in my house for another...not that they don't continue to find a spot in my humble home as everyone has to give me one no matter the occasion. <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/untitled.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"><img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/200_artistrichardneuman-art-prints_.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"><img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/adopted_1_1.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"><img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/World%20Tour/ZWT2.gif"> <img src="http://i2.photobucket.com/albums/y22/dcmac/dpg21.jpg"> Still Dirty and Still going strong...What a Gang!!! <img src="http://i161.photobucket.com/albums/t229/axerage/aboutmetagcopy.jpg"><img src="http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j166/ZaarNicksMom/Animation6.gif"><img src="http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j166/ZaarNicksMom/PACsticker-Adopted.jpg"><img src="http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/ParticipationBanner.jpg"><img src="http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b2/kiwidutch/my3chefs2009final-1.jpg"><img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/Holiday-plaid_HPI.gif"> <img src="http://i147.photobucket.com/albums/r317/j_welcome/pics2/food/PRMRcopy.jpg"> removing the X inbetween "<img src="http://i1010.photobucket.com/albums/af225/z_fbp/FBP2009participation.jpg">
