A few months ago Lora Krulak sent Nancy and I her cookbook Veggies for Carnivores. The small book is packed with a lot of recipes and variations which are tasty and easy to make. One of our favorites was this salad recipe. We've used the dressing on multiple salads now, but the first we tried it on was this chopped salad. We had it at home, then brought it to a friends house for a party, and it was a hit both places. The touch of honey is the missing ingredient that I had not been putting in my dressings. It really brings this one together. Enjoy!
