Recipe Comments & Reviews

This is always a FAVORITE in our circle of friends and family. They comment on how pretty the dish is and the fact that it doesn't use mayo/miracle whip is a wonderful change for those who do not care for mayo. I also add cubed cucumbers (peeled and seeded) and sometimes a little cauliflower. Just about any vegetable can go into this salad.
