"To remember a successful salad is generally to remember a successful dinner; at all events, the perfect dinner necessarily includes the perfect salad."
-George Ellwanger, Gastronomist
I love this little salad. It's quick and easy and really tasty. You can use yellow squash instead or combine the two for great color. It makes a great side dish for almost any soup and then you have the perfect dinner.
