This is one of my favorite salads. It is refreshingly different than your typical salad.

A sweet departure, indeed! This is a great addition to any summer meal. The recipe doesn't make a whole lot of dressing, so I would recommend at least doubling it... it's that good. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
