This was fabulous! I do not usually have iceberg lettuce on hand, but I had a head in my crisper for another recipe. When I saw this recipe, I thought it would be a good way to get rid of the lettuce. I must say, I may start keeping a head of iceberg around just to make this recipe... especially during the summer months. The dressing was delicious. It was very light and very refreshing. I have plenty of dressing left over to make a couple more salads. This recipe will go with anything!!! It is a must try!
