You get lots of flavor from just a few ingredients in this easy-to-fix salad. It’s refreshing but bold with zip from the Creole seasoning and saltiness from the olives.

"Absolutely delicious! I have made this 3 times already and have friends asking for the recipe! I didn't have the Creole seasoning so I used the suggested substitutions and it was outstanding. To make it slightly healthier, however, I use the "free zesty Italian" dressing. Deliciously healthy!"
