"I thought this salad was just okay, but not great. It did go together very quickly though and would be easy to double for a crowd if you like it."

"I made this salad for a pot luck at church. I made the dressing the day before. Tasted better the next day.

The salad was a hit. Ok I added some things that wasn't in the recipes. I added mushrooms, broccoli, and those small peppers that are green, red and yellow and such .
Everyone loved the salad and wanted the recipe. I doubled the recipe and dressing for the pot luck. Was great and I will make it again.I loved it"

"This is an excellent, fresh salad. I used extra-virgin olive oil (which I keep on hand)for the dressing, but the taste was too heavy for me. I tried extra-light olive oil and loved it."
