"EXCELLENT!! I didn't have white vinegar so I used Balsamic. No harm and certainly no foul! Lol. Cut the mayo to 3/4th of cup & sugar to 1/3rd (as a commentor recommended). It's chilling now, but it's great. My family won't eat so it's more for me! YAY! :-)"

"Read her description again, suefryray. It says, "I ALWAYS come home with an empty bowl!" It doesn't say NEVER. Sometimes people are too quick to be judgmental about the posted recipes and speak out before they know what they are talking about. Great salad Brynn Steckman :-)"

"If you never come home with an EMPTY bowl, it must not be that good. I am sure this is not what you meant to type in your description."
