When guests are coming for lunch or dinner in the warm summer months, I like to serve this attractive, colorful salad. The dressing is refreshingly tart. A neighbor shared the recipe years ago and I've passed it on many times.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 6, 2013

"This was very good. I used leftover cooked chicken which made it even faster. I used peaches instead of nectarines and thought a few blueberries would have been nice, too. We enjoyed this a lot -- a perfect light supper for summer time."

"Added blueberries, red onion and sliced cucumber. Used panko breaded baked chicken. Delicious!"
