Who doesn't love a good Salad? Not only is this Salad GREAT it is super easy. I think Salads tend to get way to elaborate and cumbersome to make without really adding a lot of flavor. The components of this Salad are not complicated, it's how well all elements marry so simply together while bringing enormous flavor. This has become my family's go to Salad and it never fails to satisfy. It is a great side Salad but stands up well as a meal with some great toast or bread. I hope you enjoy this simple dish as much as we do, in my opinion it's the only Salad recipe you need!
