It has to complement a bean & kielbasa sausage soup on Thursday night. Has to be not a fruit salad. The women in this group are judgmental. Thank you!

Everyone I know loves when I make this and it couldn't be more ridiculously easy:

Corn (it's supposed to be fresh, but I use canned)
Avocado (one ripe avocado per tin of corn) -- cut into small chunks
Grape tomatoes

Stir it up gently. The avocado gets a little creamy but I still like to put some Renee's Asian Sesame dressing on it. Italian dressing is good too, as is vidalia onion dressing. But go VERY light on the dressing. Actually, I put the dressing(s) on the side and let everyone put on as much as they'd like -- some people don't put on any.

baby spinach, toasted slivered almonds, red onion slices soaked in 50/50 lime or lemon juice & water for about 10 minutes then chopped to about the same size as the almonds, chopped hard-boiled egg, dress lightly with creamy French dressing.

Cut 4-6 tomatoes into bite sized chunks-I prefer to use Roma or plum tomatoes but any kind will do.
Cut up 2 green peppers into bite size pieces
Cut one medium purple or sweet white onion into 1/4 inch strips.

Toss all in a bowl

Dress with any oil and vinegar type dressing you like. I make my own.

1 cup Apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup oil
1/4 cup water
1 clove minced garlic or 1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp salt
1 tbs sugar or honey
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 tbs or 1 tsp minced parsley
Whips until sugar is dissolved and pour needed amount over salad.

Salad should be just covered with the dressing. Marinate in the refridgerator for 12-24 hours. Before taking to the event drain off excess dressing.

This is the thing I almost always make for pot lucks. It gets a lot of compliments.
