"I made this for a catering event and it was a hit!! Instead of pie crust dough, I used wonton wrappers and I didn't make the topping because it was easier to serve without it. Just remember to make sure the pineapple is WELL drained or your salad will get runny."

"Delicious! I served the Squash and Corn Soup from the same issue with this salad for what I thought would be a light dinner but turned out to be very filling. The only minor change I made was to toast the almonds."

"These were a big hit at a recent party. I decreased the mayonnaise in the salad to 2 Tablespoons, and it was wonderful. I made 12 in total, rather than 14. The salad is also wonderful in sandwiches. I also combined the cheese with the mayo and sour cream for the topping and it worked really well. Nice for a buffet."
