Wonderful salad, but it's the DRESSING that makes it special. Everyone raved about it and wanted the recipe. The best salad dressing I've ever had.

Oh my gosh, this salad is so good, plus it's easy to make. I've made it for 3 different occassions within the past 2 months and so many people have commented how good it was and asked for the recipe. It's definitely a keeper for life!
