This is a very wonderful tasty salad. You can serve it plain or on a bed of lettuce. Family and friends will love it. This is one of my favorite recipes with keeping my weight in check and leaving me full and satisfied at the table. Never leave the table hungry, that's my kind of recipe. Enjoy and "Happy Heart"
