We had a potluck at work this week and I brought this salad. It's got an unusual mix of ingredients and is so good! I got the recipe from Carrie of Northwoods Scrapbook. Her recipe called for pecans, but since I don't like them, I used almonds instead, so take your choice! Thanks Carrie - it was a hit!
