This salad would be the perfect 4th of July side dish!

I made this last weekend for Kinzee’s baptism. I needed two different salads to make and this was one of them. I’ll share the other one with you soon!

We had a wonderful day for Kinzee’s baptism. It was gorgeous out. A true gift from God. Bless my mom’s heart she hosted the dinner after baptism. My house is the size of peanut and we all love each other but we would have had to sit on each other’s lap to all fit in it! She made the famous Sweet ‘n’ Sour Meatballs and they were hits. If you haven’t checked out this recipe you must!

I think this salad was also a hit because my sister-in-law asked after dinner, “Hey, is this going on your blog?” I love it when when I get asked for recipes to go on my blog!

    I do like the sound of this one! I’m wondering if Parmesan dressing might work equally well. Have you tried any other dressing?

    This sounds yummy. Any idea on the calorie count?
