MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 19, 2013

"I have added red, yellow, green and orange peppers as well as red cabbage to this and everyone loves it. They just add more color and flavor. Still excellent with or without my additions. You can't go wrong with this wonderful salad."

MY REVIEW

"Very easy recipe to make and very tasty. We let the veggies marinate for 2.5 hours instead of 3 hours as recommended and it was still good."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 11, 2012

"I made this salad for a buffet dinner and everyone loved it. I thought I had plenty, but it was all eaten! I went exactly by the recipe, except I mistakenly bought Hidden Valley ranch "dip" mix instead of "salad dressing" mix. It was still excellent."
