Coastal Clambake Salad

I had to sneak one more recipe in here before the cold weather hits and this is a perfect ending to a summer of picnics. If desired, add some cooked, chopped lobster to give you a taste of the coast. The amount of dressing is just enough to hold together, but double it up for a creamy salad. Serve along with a bowl of chowder and crackers and you can almost hear the waves.
