"This light and delicious salad is packed with protein, vitamins, and fiber. I tried this while visiting a resort in Marco Island and could not wait to recreate it myself. This salad is the perfect dish for a light lunch or a side dish at dinner. Your vegetarian friends will thank you for serving this at any dinner party or BBQ."
