Suffern Inn Salad

This salad must be prepared 24 hours ahead of time. It is most unusual and very delightful. It is perfect with grilled, steak, chicken, pork or fish. I am so ready to fire up the grill after this awful winter. Anything I can do ahead is great with me, it's just one more thing I don't have to think about. Actually it's more like remember to do. Enjoy!
