I came up with this recipe when unexpected company arrived and I didn't have enough lettuce and tomatoes on hand to make a traditional salad. Everyone enjoyed it so much that it became a regular at our table. —Avanell Hewitt, North Richland Hills, Texas

I loved loved this salad.

MY REVIEW

I suggest adding bacon to this recipe and using shredded cheese instead of cubed cheese.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 5, 2014

This is a delicious salad. One that is easy to prepare and seems to go well with almost anything. I love salads that have a crunch to them and as such usually add nuts or croutons to any that I make, but this salad did not need anything added to it, for it is naturally crisp. I did add a tablespoon of sour cream to the dressing to make it a bit creamier.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 2, 2014

I followed the suggestions of others and cut everything much smaller except the julienned green pepper and sliced onion. It was really good. I brought it to a family party and it was devoured. I was actually wishing we had some left over cause I was craving it today to have with my lunch.
