Olive Floret Salad
I’m retired from a large company but occasionally work when someone’s on vacation. We’ve had many potlucks there, and even now on my trips back, everyone still asks for this salad. —Joanne Flanigan, South Beloit, Illinois

I've made this salad for a number of potlucks and picnics over the years. It's always a hit with the vegetable lovers in the group. Suggestion: I recommend using Wishbone Robusto Italian Dressing.
