"Very good!!! We love this recipe. Some eat it with the lettuce and some donot, but they all like it so far. We have used green grapes as well and it turned out just as good."

"This recipe is scrumptious! I make it all the time. It is very good with black grapes too! If you can't have poppy seed dressing for medical reasons, like diverticulitis, use 1c mayo, 2tbls vinegar and 1/4c sugar. It tastes great either way!"
