MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 19, 2013

This was surprisingly tasty! It went pretty quick at my house and found it to be a great change of pace from mayo based cold salads.

MY REVIEW

I love this salad, and so does my family. I make it with Ken's Steakhouse Zesty italian dressing, and maybe a little extra spinach. Delicious.
