"I made some changes to the original recipe by adding extra tomatoes, more color, celery for crunch, relish for a hint of sweetness and ham to make it more filling," explains Karen Ballance of Wolf Lake, Illinois. "It's great for picnics and potlucks or as a side dish for any meal," she adds. "It's also handy because you make it ahead of time."

"I thought the taste of this dish was excellent. My only problem is that I made it the day before serving and the dish a rather dry. I think if you are going to make this dish, it should be served the same day. I used cherry tomatoes on top for decoration and I did not use the cuke because I thought it would get too soggy. I also did not use the salt. Will definitely make again."

"I left out the ham and added onion powder instead of real onions. I really liked it and folks at the pool party I brought it to ate it happily."
