I love this salad and it is always a hit when I bring it to parties. This summer, this salad is going to be my go-to recipe to bring to picnic’s and bbq. It is so easy to put together, and it is a super clean salad, but it tastes oh so delicious too!


In a few weeks I have a pool party that is planned with all of my friends, and I know that this salad will be a huge hit. It can sit out for awhile because it is not mayonnaise based salad, and it is a super healthy salad that I know everyone will love that it is not ruining the figures they have worked so hard on this year.
