"This is one of my favorite salads. The dressing is perfect for the salad mixture. Love this!"

Reviewed Jul. 6, 2013

"I surprisingly enjoyed this salad. It's a nice change from our plain dinner salads and really easy to prepare and I think that it tastes very light and fresh. Next time, I probably won't put the olives on though(personal preference)."

"I found the flavor in the average range. I probably won't make it again, since I have so many other salad recipes that I prefer, but it's not a bad recipe, and I can see others enjoying it. I would recommend people try it."

"I have made this recipe dozens of times and we just love it. It's the perfect salad to serve with Italian main dishes, especially when you have guests. I have also made it without the tomatoes, or using cherry tomatoes (halved) and it is great that way too. The dressing is very flavorful for being so light."

"This is garlicky, but oh-so delicious. I've taken it to pot lucks and parties, and it's wonderful."
