It's hard for me to get excited about salads, however, we LOVE this one. When I first saw it- I wasn't sure that this is something that would work for us but decided to give it a try. This is so unexpectedly delicious and easy to pull together. It's a must make.

This is by no doubt the best tasting salad that the whole family can enjoy. My son-in-law doesn't eat salads because they are "rabbit food." but he ate every bite and wanted more.
