I got this recipe a few years ago from a friend of a friend. My friend and I had been invited to her home for Christmas dinner, and she served the most delicious salad with her meal. I raved about how good it was, and she was more than happy to write down her recipe for me. It’s economical and oh so simple to make. To make it a meal, simply add chicken or shrimp.
