Reviews for Makeover Silverglade Salad
"A deliciously lighter version of the original Silverglade Salad. This was a hit at our church potluck dinner today...no leftovers! I did use honey roasted peanuts, because the soy nuts weren't available. But the lighter Dijon vinaigrette dressing was more to my taste than that of the original recipe. I felt that the amount of cheese could even be reduced further, and the lesser amount of bacon was ample for flavor and crunch. Delicious!"
