This is one great tasting salad that even I like and trust me, I'm not a big salad eater! It's really light and fresh and not too filling before an entree'. This salad can be made as a main course for 2 people by just adding more to 2 plates as opposed to 4 plates. Tweak this to your liking and enduldge!
