Colorful, hearty ingredients and a delectable dressing make second helpings of this salad hard to resist. Cottage cheese is an unusual but tasty addition. I never have to worry about storing leftovers. -Barbara Birk, American Fork, Utah

"This has been a favorite salad for several years now. It is the salad I take to potlucks and family gatherings. However, not being a mushroom fan, a pint of grape or cherry tomatoes instead of the mushrooms is much better."
