MY REVIEW

"I made this and the Parmesan Knots from Taste of Home for a luncheon jewelry party I was hosting and everyone loved both. The salad was easy to make and easy to eat off the plate without having to sit at a table. Will definitely use this recipe again! Try it AND the Parmesan Knots. Great light lunch!"

"Followed the recipe exactly as it says, but the final dish ended up having a very bland taste. We added more ranch, about a tablespoon of sugar, dash of salt, and some milk. After adding these ingredients, it tasted much better!"

"My daughter LOVES this. It's fast cheap and a snap to make and for a summer meal, this is wonderful, we used red grapes, though. It gave it more color."
