    This is a great salad and so easy to make. I have made it many times and it is always a big hit with my friends and family.
    For groups, I put it in a 9×13 and layer everything on top. Dressing served on the side, which
    is also very delicious.

    Is it red wine vinegar or red wine?

      Hi Cindy. It’s white wine vinegar or red wine vinegar. Thanks for catching that! You could also just use white distilled vinegar if that is all you have.
      I love this salad and dressing! Hope you do too! -Amy
