Note:

"I love to experiment, so I'm always creating recipes. The dressing in this salad is one I've been making a long time for fruit salad, but it also works well on leafy greens. Bagged salad mixes are a great time-saver, and you can throw a meal together in no time by adding a protein such as grilled chicken or shrimp." —Recipe Author and Sides & Salads Finalist, Debra Keil, Owasso, Okla.
