Notes

This is an incredibly fresh salad.  Simple and clean flavor.  Add blue cheese crumbles, dried cranberries and toasted walnuts for added flair.  When I served this this first time at home, my husband, Chris, said, "This is the BEST salad I have had in a long time!"  WE eat a great deal of vegetables in our house, but this little dish brings a spring flavor in the house even in the winter.  Give it a try!
