This is one of our favorite Salads, & So Colorful on the Plate. Its simply so Simple to put together and we get our Vegies also. OPTIONS; You can Mix your Lettuce, or add Broccoli, Caulif, Pea Pods, Peas, Carrots, Mushrooms, Beets, You name it, the list is never ending, The Choices are all yours. I vary my Dressings to suit my taste. I love the Raspberry Vinegarite, Its so good, and easy on the diets, or just a simple wine Vinegar.
