    This quickly became my staple recipe--requested by family and friends time and again. I've added teriyaki marinated chicken and made it an entreé. Fabulous recipe!

    This salad was a breeze to make. I whipped up all the ingredients in the mornng, prepped the lettuce and stored separately in the fridge until serving time. Quick and easy to throw together. Served it as a part of my Father's Day dinner and it was a hit. Very tasty. It's a keeper for sure.

    My SIL has made this salad numerous times and it's so delicious! I seem to be addicted to it because everytime she makes it I seem to have 4 servings+ of it. Now that I've found the recipe I'm going to be making it with gusto!

    What a delicious salad. I added a large can (drained)of mandarin oranges. I have made it several times and sent the recipe on to others at their request.
