Excellent salad. I would back off on the garlic next time but otherwise easy and delicious.

This was a surprise hit with the entire family! I can't have deli meat, so I replaced deli meat with shredded chicken.

Big hit at our house. Husband grumbled over having salad for dinner but then he and 4 yr old devoured it. I used both turkey and ham and left out the corn (because I forgot it).
