With chicken, ham and tiny shrimp, this recipe makes a hearty warm-weather salad. The dill adds a nice twist. It's great to serve for a luncheon. -Mary Selner, Green Bay, Wisconsin

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 8, 2011

This salad was delicious! I made a batch one night and have been packing it for lunches all week. It's kept well without getting soggy or the flavors blending together. I left the shrimp out since I'm on a college budget, but I'm sure adding it in would just make the salad that much better. Will definitely make this again, and may use it for tailgating recipes

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 6, 2011

This salad is easy to make and is good all year round. Made it for a pot luck at work and my co-workers loved it and asked for the recipe. The only thing I did to this recipe is I added a cucumber. It still was good.
