    Hi Dani,
    My daughter-in-law Mindy makes this salad often & I just love it! Not sure if her dressing is the same but will definitely try yours also.
    Also wanted to thank you for the great card, pictures & sweet sentiments you sent. Really means a lot to me to have all the love, support & most of all prayers extended to me.
    Love the photos too….actually spoke w/Dad last Sunday & mentioned your card. I can’t believe how much Katie & Jachs look alike. If born closer to together they could be twins. One thing for sure they will never be able to deny being sister & brother……also think they look a lot like you at Katie’s age (the eyes have it)!

    Thanks again as I really appreciate you personally touching base. Might add I also enjoy getting your receipes too…always look forward to them.
    Luv, Paula
