There is nothing special about this salad. The salad ingredients are standard to many other recipes but the dressing was weak and pretty much tasteless. Several people at the table took a bite and said, "Did you leave something out of the dressing?" We all agreed we didn't want to eat it again.

This salad is really simple, but the dressing makes it delicious!
