Salad De Maison

When I was pregnant, my aunt had us over for dinner and made this incredible salad. I don't know if it was the fact that I was pregant and craving salad at the time (cravings quickly switched to french fries don't worry) or what... but I couldn't stop eating it. Since then it has been one of my favorite salad recipes to make. I made it last night and my friend wanted to recipe so I thought I would share it with all of you too.
