"This is a fabulous salad. I finely chopped one rib of celery into it instead of using the seed just because I like the crunch. Use real mayo and this is a can't stop eating hit!"

"I thought this looked like a good recipe in general, but knew I'd need a little more zing in it, so I added half of a package of dry ranch dressing mix. It was still a bit bland for my taste, so I mixed together a tablespoon of sugar with a half tablespoon of vinegar, and that gave it more of the sweet/sour taste I wanted. Everyone thought it was great!"
