I went to college in Mt. Pleasant, and my roommate worked at The Embers. This salad was one of the favorites there at the time. We asked her how they make it, and she gave us this. It is sooooo good, and would go well with their wonderful pork chops. I've switched to the fat free dressing, and it is just as good.
