Found this recipe on The Pioneer Woman site and LOVED it! I couldn't wait to eat it, so mine was a little warm. But it was heavenly then, the same as it was when it had a chance to chill the next time. Thought I would share this with everyone. :)
Just a tip:
Try and make sure the ingredients for the dressing are at room temperature. This will help them mix together more smoothly and more quickly. :)
