Loomis writes: "The key to this salad...is to use the freshest, crispest
vegetables you can find. It should be served chilled to get the best
effect, but you can avoid a time lag between preparation and serving by
refrigerating the vegetables for several hours before beginning, so they go
chilled right into the bowl.

"The amount of onion you use depends on whether or not you're a real onion
fan. I love a sweet onion in this salad, but if you're onion-shy, use half
the amount called for. The recipe did not originally call for salt and
pepper, and it does not need it, but you should adjust the seasoning to
your taste."
