This is possibly one of my favorite salads! If you aren't familiar with the BYU-Idaho catering department do yourself a favor and never start! They make the most incredible food! Seriously I haven't tried anything from there that I didn't love! So here's where the love affair started, my mom ordered from the catering department on several occasions for weddings and parties so the addiction began! I would call and place an order on Wednesday so it would be ready for Friday pickup before I headed back to Blackfoot for the weekend. I truly only did this a couple times and the order was always the same..... a 1/4 sheet cake (wedding cake, rosettes and all! haha) and either this delicious salad or a snickers salad (stay posted, recipe coming soon!) Seriously I hope you love this salad as much as I do!
