Reviews for Christmas Vegetable Salad
"Was a huge hit at our family's Christmas decorating contest! Am planning to make it for Christmas Day dinner, too! After reading the comments, I had peperoccinis available for those who like them. I thought they added a great flavor to the salad! Was very attractive in my cut-glass bowl, too!"
"Disappointing! Glad I tried this before making it for Christamas!"
"I've made a similar thing for years and call it "Winter Salad". I add sliced carrots and often add marinated artichoke hearts, using a little additional of the artichoke marinade as the dressing. I may make a large batch and keep in the frig for several days, taking some out each day to toss with some lettuce, pine nuts, snap peas, pepperocini, and whatever else I have on hand that sounds good. I sometimes rinse off the artichoke hearts and use another dressing. This is versatile and always a hit."
"This was a great salad, for someone who doesn't like peppers or stuffed olives it was great."
"I made this for Christmas Day and was a big success. Then I made it for a baby shower and everyone loved this recipe. I could make this every week my Husband really likes this salad."
"Very tangy and tasty, albeit unusual. My family liked this salad--it went well with lasagna as a side dish, believe it or not!"
"I have used this recipe often. Sometimes we substitute Splenda for the sugar. I used red wine vinegar and 1 packet of Splenda. Delicious."
"I grew up on this recipe except we always used a lite Italian dressing. I like the dressing ingredients used in this recipe. Any crunchy vegetables works well with it, too, such as fresh broccoli, carrots, and celery. It's one of my favorite salads."
"This salad is a keeper. My family loved it."
"This salad is so easy to fix and so fast to do, it's an easy add on to any meal. My family loves it and we'll be keeping this recipe."
