I’m not a fan of cilantro, so I used basil (my favorite herb), and the dressing tasted like pesto and was lovely!

A solid salad. Though it felt hearty, I did feel hungry a little while after dinner.

Great, hearty salad. Probably helped that we used pancetta as our deli meat of choice!

I loved this one because it has corn, but chose to use rotisserie chicken rather than deli meats.
