"I made this salad for my family christmas dinner and paired it with pineapple chicken and a light fruit salad. The family said it was on of the best christmas dinners weve ever had!"

"I usually put my own spin on a recipe. I like hard salami more than pepperoni, so I substituted the hard salami for the pepperoni and I omitted the celery seed. It is a great recipe and I will make it again and again!"
