The night that I made Beef Meatballs in Marinara over Rigatoni, Mr. Gooch made this tasty salad. I had been out running some errands at Home Depot (I swear that I am in that place weekly), Hobby Lobby, the grocery, and the bank. So coming home to flowers and dinner already started was so sweet.
The best part of the deal? This recipe is quick, easy and tasty. So if you need to whip up a quick salad that is an alternative to the usual lettuce based version, this is for you.
