This salad is fresh and full of different textures. It's sweet and tangy with just a little heat. And so simple to make! This would be great for a side for a potluck or a summer cookout. Very yummy. The Test Kitchen

Kitchen Crew @JustaPinch

They pack protein into a salad, are a fantastic on-the-go breakfast and a necessity for making deviled eggs. Hard boiled eggs are fantastic but are a bit intimidating to cooks....
