MY REVIEW

"Great salad, refreshing and was a hit with our Easter dinner guests. I only used 1/2 of the dressing and I added red and green grapes. Served in a lettuce bowl and added fresh strawberries all around."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 25, 2011

"I would only make it again by skipping the pudding mix or the sugar. It was way too sweet. Use one or the other but not both! Also would add more celery next time."
