My husband and I had this amazing and different salad at the Disney World’s Food and Wine Festival. I came right home and found about a zillion recipes on the internet. I made this recipe from all of those other recipes; I think it came out awesome. This is perfect for a barbeque dinner or a light luncheon. I hope you love it too.
