I have two favorite salads in my universe that I will never ever tire of eating. This is one of them.

I make it for every single dinner party and take it to friends’ homes for potlucks because even the pickiest salad eater will fall in love. The colors and presentation really are beautiful. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
