Without a doubt this is the best salad I have ever eaten. I used to order it from a cafe in Eaton Place. I did get the recipe from our local newspaper Winnipeg Free Press. So without further addo I will pass it on to you. Hopefully you will give it a try . I know you will not be sorry. It is just soooo good!
