“I found this one on allrecipes and tweaked it a bit. It's a wonderful salad for a cookout or potluck, and leftovers keep well (it makes quite a large batch). Don't let the long ingredient list scare you off, it's actually very simple to make. For any ingredients with a range of amounts, the least amount is what I like to use, the greatest amount is what the original recipe calls for. This is a vegan-friendly recipe if veggie broth is substituted for chicken broth.”
