Recipe for Lena salad

Serves 8

Named for Nautical Thanksgiving hostess Lena Cobb Adams (as “Cobb” was already taken in salad nomenclature), this colorful, multi-textured vegetarian dish has become a beloved staple of the Nauty-T table ever since Avery Appleton concocted it on the fly years ago in her Cambridge apartment. While best served fresh, it’s especially good alongside the next morning’s breakfast scramble.
