Alyson says that she is a huge salad critic - very picky about the salads she eats. We rather agree; if we are going to do all the work of making a pleasantly diverse salad - chopping all those different bits and tossing with just the right dressing - it better be amazing. This one looks like it fits the bill.
Plus, Alyson adds a little smoked sausage for heft, so it could totall be a one-bowl meal for this hot weather.
