LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this recipe! I cut out this recipe quite a while ago & just got around to making it. (Why did I wait so long? I was afraid the husband & kids would turn their noses up at it.). Well, the husband wasn't around to try it, but the kids loved it - cleaned their plates, had seconds & cleaned their plates again. One note...there's no way this salad serves 12. As a main dish, I'd say it serves 4, max.
