"This salad is a favorite of my three sons,” writes Lisa Ashley of Leesburg, Georgia. “I took it to a luncheon honoring our school district’s food service manager. She was very complimentary and even asked for the recipe. I like to make the dressing the day before for the flavors to blend together,” she adds.
