Angela’s Tip: This is another salad you can have fun with by making substitutions. Add or substitute any of the following: green beans, cooked potatoes, carrots, crisp fruits such as apples. Vary the lettuces as well or combine several kinds. The only lettuce that doesn’t work well is iceberg lettuce.
