I love having cold salads with a meal. I try to branch out and try to serve a variety of salads during the week. This is one of our favorites, especially during the hotter months.

This is especially tasty with grilled chicken. I love to bring this to potlucks or picnics. It’s perfect for any occasion, so I tend to make it often.
