"The dressing needed a little something more. I added some Dijon mustard and made it a more traditional salad dressing."

"Not very flavorful. I added bottled balsamic vinaigrette dressing and then it tasted fine, but I wouldn't eat it if I just stuck to the recipe."

"This recipe sounded fantastic to me, but even after refrigerating it overnight I still felt like there was something missing. It wasn't as flavorful as I thought it would be."

"Sorry, this didn't do anything for us. It just didn't have much taste. It looks prettier than it tastes."

"This recipe looks good but I love the recipe from the Morton salt website. It doesn't add all the extras and it is delicious .... it is called Greek Green Bean and Tomato salad. But I halve grape tomatoes instead of the plum tomatoes!!!"
