Festive Tossed Salad

I STILL do a lot of cooking even though the numbers have changed. I owe my discovery of this salad to my sister-in-law, a Louisiana native and a fabulous cook. It's always a hit with everyone—pretty to serve, adaptable to any number and tasty, too. —Ruby Williams Bogalusa, Louisiana
