A simple salad, this is ready in approximately 15 minutes! For those who would like to add a little more crunch to the salad, chopped and toasted pecans or finely chopped celery make wonderful additions, as well. Serve with warm, toasted pita slices topped with parmesan cheese for a light, refreshing meal!
