    This is one of my husband’s favorites. It is so light and easy to prepare. The tangy sauce is quite different and I’m sure some people wouldn’t care for it, but we really love it!

    We liked everything about this salad except for the dressing, which we didn't care for at all. If we make it again we'd try a different salad dressing.
