Chopped Salad with Parmesan Dressing
Our two children and I plan to mix up this attractive salad for brunch on Father's Day. It's always been enjoyed wherever I have served it. Having my recipe chosen as a contest winner is a special treat for me—Country Woman has been my favorite source for new food ideas for years!
