It was such a treat to have a crisp, garden-fresh salad back when Mom didn't have much room in our little icebox to keep produce chilled. This salad is as colorful and festive as it is refreshing. -Ruth Seitz, Columbus Junction, Iowa

"I called this my Christmas salad. It was perfect. I left out the carrots because I served carrots as a side dish. My company went back for not just a second helping but thirds! easy and so good,"

"Made this for Easter and it was a hit! I left out the Parmesan cheese and bacon. Added cubed cheddar cheese and sliced the carrot rather than grating it to save time. A great way to get veggies in. Will make again soon."
