ABOUT THE RECIPE:

This salad is a good choice for a first or second course when you’re hosting a dinner party, as all the ingredients can be prepared earlier in the day and chilled separately until serving time. It makes a great luncheon salad too, paired with a cup of soup and whole-grain crackers on the side.

Makes 4 servings
