Just got back from the store where I picked up ingredients for the salad. I think I will add a little diced red and yellow pepper as well. We will be having it for supper tonight with grilled wild salmon... :D

Oh and I am substituting diced tomato for grape tomatoes..

Salad was awesome hubby even helped me make it ..A first..

Added a few extras though :
Small diced yellow and red pepper
small cubed Gouda cheese
small diced dill pickle

and for the dressing we zipped it up with some horseradish mayo and sweet with heat piquant sauce..

It turned out fab. went perfect with the salmon ,have some left over and will finish it with grilled steak tomorrow..

Thanks for the idea rocksprings.. :tiphat:
