This is one of my favorite salad recipes. It's a kind of strange combination of ingredients, but works incredibly well together. The dressing is light and creamy, and there are a variety of textures within the salad. Be forewarned - this is super addictive and you might end up regretting having 4 giant helpings of it. This is easy to put together and makes a ton. Leftovers are great for a few days - if they last!
