Reviews for Company Green Salad
"Very tasty. My kids have specifically asked for it!"
"This salad was awesome! I took it to a 4th of July gathering and was sad when I didn't have any left to eat the next day. I used an artisan lettuce mix and chopped it into small bite size pieces which I've discovered makes a good salad great."
"Hmmmm, I'm curious to know how this recipe can be considered 'Diabetic Friendly' when there's a Tablespoon of sugar listed in ingredients."
"My husband said this is one of his favorite salads. I have to agree. It's simple to make and full of flavor. I used Olive Oil instead of Canola. I'm not sure why it asked for Conola."
