This is a wonderful recipe! If you love the taste of veggies and/or are looking for ways to reduce the salt that often comes with dressings, try this one. Great fresh taste.
I liked this recipe, but I did do a few things differently. I used a full fat mayo, just because I prefer the taste. I also added chopped ham from one I had boiled. It was delicious and turned this side into a meal for me.
I grated the carrot and used Miracle Whip
salad dressing (instead of Mayo) which has a sweetness to it. Also added a little more pepper and a wee bit of paprika.
I made this for the first time this weekend. Because so many of the reviews talked about the dressing not having much flavor, I added celery seed, lemon juice, a little sugar and sour cream to it. Really made it taste great! I made this the night before to enhance the flavors.
I use this same basic recipe. I add cubed Colby cheese, some chopped onion, leave out the cucumber & carrots. I also add some sugar & a spritz of lemon juice. Gives the dressing a little more flavor.
