"Delicious main dish salad! I made this recipe exactly as written except I left out the mushrooms. I served it with roasted garlic bread from the bakery."

"Very nice! Served this at a ladies' luncheon and everyone was complimentary of it. I had to leave out the walnuts because I knew one lady has nut allergies, but I definitely want to include them when I serve this to my family."
