I brought this salad to a pot-luck dinner and it was gone in no time. I was asked for the recipe by a few people and send them the link to the recipe here. Thx for sharing this recipe here.

This is a great salad and we loved it not only for the taste but because it is something different to have and it tasted so good with our Chinese link sausages on the grill. This will be repeated!
