MY REVIEW

"Maybe I did something wrong, but it was way too mayonnaisey. I didn't have croutons on hand, so it was pretty plain."

"next time I am not adding croutons, salad is just delicious without them!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 6, 2009

"I took this salad to a cookout and everyone loved it! I was a little skeptical about the ingredients but made as the recipe stated. The only changes I made was to add some green pepper and red onion, Will make again."
