Reviews for Pizza Salad with Tomato Vinaigrette
"I have made this salad for years. Love it! Only I use red onion rings, red pepper cut in small strips and sometimes substitute halved grape tomatoes. The tomato dressing is quite good. It is also good with Bernstein's Light Cheese Fantastico dressing."
