This recipe has been in my family for as long as I can remember. It's been a family favorite for ages and is often served at both big family gatherings (holidays and celebrations) as well as "every night" dinners. When I'm asked to bring a green salad to a friend's house or if I'm bringing dinner to a family who just had a baby, this is the salad I most often bring. It's so simple and it tastes so good. You will want to drink the sweet vinaigrette dressing! Okay, not really - but it's that good!
