This is a favorite salad I make often. It's so versatile you can really make it your own easily!

Make sure to taste the dressing as your making it to adjust to your liking! And add as little or as much as you'd like.

I also added about 1/2 cup or so of cooked wild rice to the mix this time and it was excellent!
