CL Comments: Chopped apple or green grapes would also work well in this fast summer dinner. Ready-to-use slaw and preshredded carrots make short work of this refreshing salad.
Comments from a PA Kitchen: I loved this and I cannot believe I haven't tried it before now. This will be a regular lunch staple for me from now on. I made it the night before so it had a chance to blend before we had it for lunch the next day. Delicious!
