I always find it so fascinating that food not only bring people together, but also reminds us of special moments in life.
This salad is one that reminds me of a close friend whom I hold very dear to my heart.
I was given the pleasure of being introduced to this salad as a result of one of the many potluck sessions my high school friends and I have had over the years.
At one point, I made it compulsory for every person who came to these catch ups to make the dish. No take away allowed. 😛
It was a challenge many of my friends grumbled and whined about with “do we really have to?” or “I’m not a good cook” or “I can’t cook”. Especially the friend who came up with this salad.
After all the whining and pleading every girl brought something to the table that they made. And so the tastings began.
I think this salad surprised her as much as I was delighted to have a new go to salad in my life.
