"Very yummy, quick and easy. Even better after adding a tablespoon of peanut butter to the dressing!

Or you could add salted peanuts or sunflower seeds."

"Wow - great easy recipe. No leftovers :)

I used Duke's mayo ( our fave brand in SC!!) and 1/2 n 1/2 instead of milk. Crushed pineapple added is great too. Definitely will be one of my tried and trues!"

"So easy to make. I swap craisins for raisins. I try to make it 1 to 4 hrs before serving so it can marinate in the fridge (raisins / craisins absorb some liquids and get plumper - yum!) but it's good to just make it and go. It's my favorite dish to bring to a pot-luck dinner (and I never bring home leftovers)."
