Family, friends and good food are the foundations of our lives. We celebrate with them, mourn with them and nothing can bring us comfort more than a steaming bowl of soup or a slice of chocolate cake except for the love of our family and friends...

This salad is adapted from a wonderful meal Frank and I had while vacationing in Florida and is a favorite meal at our house. It goes great with the Spanish Bean Soup.

4 cloves garlic minced
