"Cool and refreshing"—that describes this leftovers salad pretty well! It's full of cold ingredients. Prepare it as a side dish or serve it along with homemade bread as a main course. I frequently make my salad for family luncheons. That's only appropriate—the recipe was passed down to me by my mom, who got it from her mom! I'm a full-time wife and mom (plus home-school teacher!) with five sons, who range in age from 9 to 1.

"I had some leftover roast pork and didn't know what to do with it until I ran across this recipe. It went together like a dream. My chowhounds scraped the bowl clean."
