"I have made this many times and its great! I have found adding roasted peanut instead of almonds and I also add shredded parmesan cheese makes it even better. If there are any leftovers they are better the next day and the next day. Delicious!"

"This was a really easy salad to put together. I didn't have enough ranch dressing, so I added some mayonnaise to the mixture. I also added cheddar cheese cubes, some chopped red onion and sprinkled sunflower seeds on the top. Loved it!"
