This is a great salad for those hot summer nights when you don't really want to have the oven going! It is also meatless and a nice change from some of those heavy dinner meals! It is really quick and easy too! What more could you ask for!
I will be making this again. It would be great to take to a covered dish at church too.

Peg's note...if you are serving this for your main meal, it probably won't serve 6!
