My mom is visiting for the week so I made this salad for us the other night and her reaction was the same as mine when I first tried it; she couldn’t believe the great combination of flavors. We both enjoy each ingredient on its own, but when they pair together into this salad you get to experience many layers of flavor. This is a healthy salad to whip up when it’s too hot to cook outside and makes a great side dish for picnics and BBQs.
