I have not layered the salad in any specific order, only tried to mix up all the wonderful ingredients, so that no one misses out on a single taste.

At first I thought my family would like it as we are salad fans, but their response was out of this world ! My daughter could not stop eating and talking about the Mad Dog Salad until it was all finished. I had seconds, but would have loved thirds – unfortunately, I was beaten to it.

No worries though, this salad will be made more often now !   It might look a little daunting as the ingredients list is quite long {for a salad}, but it is so quick to throw together, there is no excuse not to try this.
