"THE GOLDEN DRESSING for this salad is more than just a salad topping. It's excellent served as a sauce for meat or used as a marinade for vegetables. The touch of curry gives any combination of vegetables a wonderfully tangy taste."

"I would make this salad again, except for the dressing, which was disappointing. The hard-boiled eggs are fine but use a different dressing. Also, use the frozen green beans not the canned - the frozen have a much more appetizing color and fresher taste. Otherwise this is a salad with a very pretty, appetizing presentation."
