This crisp and crunchy salad is one of my favorites., and it's popular at potlucks, too. We enjoy this recipe when the lettuce is fresh from the garden. —Diane Alger, Hebron, Connecticut

"This quickly became my staple recipe--requested by family and friends time and again. I've added teriyaki marinated chicken and made it an entreé. Fabulous recipe!"

"This salad was a breeze to make. I whipped up all the ingredients in the mornng, prepped the lettuce and stored separately in the fridge until serving time. Quick and easy to throw together. Served it as a part of my Father's Day dinner and it was a hit. Very tasty. It's a keeper for sure."
