Author Notes: I love making salads. More so in spring and summer, but salads are always fun for me to put together. This is my basic salad, which I make with different variations. My husband is the one who began referring to this as the holy salad. I thought an alternate name might be more appropriate, then decided to go with its customary name. —Zahirah
