In cold months you tend to eat heavier food to help you deal with the weather. However, no matter how wonderful the main course tastes, it will taste so much better with a light, bright side dish to balance it off. This salad is one of those side dishes. As a bonus, it is quick, quick, quick to put together. The beauty of this salad will draw comments and then you will get rave reviews on the entire dinner. This salad is the key. Its brightness makes all the other dishes sing in harmony. The last time we had this it was served with sauteed green beans and roasted zucchini (both very garlic-heavy) and meat loaf. It was a fine symphony.
If you have any left, refrigerate these beauties in an airtight container and enjoy them the next day with lunch. Actually, add them to the lunch box since they taste wonderful at room temperature.
