"I made this salad when it first appeared in 1996. My husband loved it so I kept the magazine all these years. When I prepared to make the salad my magazine had disappeared. I am so happy to have the recipe again."

"Our daughter is hosting our Christmas family gathering and I'll be presenting this lovely salad in a glass decorative bowl as pictured. I make the Ranch Dip instead of the dressing in the recipe and add fresh lemon juice instead of the vinegar, sugar to taste and lemon pepper seasoning to taste in place of the salt & pepper. It is a very festive addition to a Holiday buffet table."

"Not only is it quick and easy to make, it really is visually attractive and appealing sitting on the table. I also received several compliments from my family and friends as to how flavorful it was. At the end of the day/event I offer to share what is left from the meal with my company and this salad was one of the first things to be divided up."
