MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 7, 2011

"I agree, this was just okay. Seems like it's called "Italian Salad" only because of the 1/2 teaspoon of Italian seasoning! I would add some sliced pepperoncini."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 10, 2010

"The salad was good, but the dressing was just okay. I would make it again, but it's not my absolute favorite."
