Who says summer meals have to be complicated? We love this tangy, simple and tasty salad on warm summer nights. Add a cold glass of lemonade or iced tea and dinner couldn’t be easier. —Samantha Vicars, Kenosha, WI

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 18, 2014

Loved the salad. Made as written. I do think next time I'll make less dressing, somewhere between 1/2 and 2/3 as directed in this recipe is plenty for this quantity of salad.
