This salad is great for a light meal. Thumbs up from the whole family and it was still good the next day.

Anything that combines pimento-stuffed olives with dried cranberries is going to be either awful or wonderful, and I'm happy to say this is wonderful. I almost chickened-out and omitted the olives but am so glad I didn't! I made 1/2 the recipe for self and husband and with corn on the cob and a slice of french bread, it was really satisfying. I had some leftover cracked wheat (bulgar wheat) and used it for 1/3 total grain, and I think it added a nice nutty flavor. Since I had a bag of dried mixed berries, I used them rather than 100% cranberries and would do so again. Also put mixture on top of lettuce instead of mixing lettuce in. This made a great summer dinner and one I'd be happy to serve to guests or put out at a buffet table.

Really simple, delicious salad. Good for dinner, picnic or to save for lunch the next day. Kid (teenager) friendly, too!

This salad is really pretty on the plate. It's also simple and delcious. It paired well with the suggested cantaloupe and white wine. I'm not a huge fan of olives, so I might cut them in half the next time I make the recipe.
