One more salad for holiday table: lighter salad with crab sticks, red beans, tomatoes, bell pepper and cheese. It is pretty fast to make because doesn’t require any prep work: nothing to boil or cook prior to assembling.
I used italian blend of shredded cheese, but any hard cheese you like will work. If you have whole piece of cheese, you can dice it instead of shredding.
Adjust amount of garlic to your liking, if whole clove seems a bit too much use only half of it.
