"This is an awesome salad!! Every time I make it I get people raving over it and even my marathon running sister can't get enough of it. My husband is super picky and this is his favorite salad. The only thing I take out is the mushrooms as we don't like them uncooked."

"A very good salad. I added the salt, pepper and garlic salt to the dressing and omitted the the salt called for in the dressing."
