This colorful, light salad was a hit at our church’s cooking club. It’s easy to assemble and delicious, too.

MY REVIEW

Salads are something that have to be outstanding to appeal to picky ol' me...and this one certainly does. Though I'm always trying salad recipes, the file I have of ones that made the "outstanding" grade is pretty small. I used a huge clove of garlic in the dressing, and absolutely loved the garlicky goodness that permeated the dish. This is so different from the typical lettuce based salad......delicious and flavorful and wonderful!

I saw this prepared at one of the Taste Of Home Cooking Schools and went out and bought the ingredients right afterwards. It is soooo good!
