Reviews for That Good Salad

"I made this recipe when it first came out in the magazine and it has been a go to salad ever since. The name is easy to remember so I have always been able to easily search the TOH website for it."
"This has to be our favorite salad. Because of all the wonderful ingredients, I find that I don't need the full amount of dressing (anything to cut calories). This is a great salad for potluck's. The quantities are easy to adjust for the amount of people you are serving."
"This is a wonderful salad. I used to prepare it years ago when it first came out in the magazine. I ran across it again recently and am so glad I did. It is a great crowd pleaser."
"Oh, my gosh! This recipe has been requested by my family & friends literally hundreds of times since I first made it the month it was published in TOH! The only thing I change is using bagged prepared salad mixes to save time! We have six kids & all of them ask me to make it for every birthday, graduation or other special occasion as well as it being a favorite answer to the question, "What should we have for supper?" Great for ordinary daily meals as well as special events. Easy to make, too."
"We looooove this salad; I often get recipe requests. I appreciate the advice from the reviewer who said she doubles the cheese when she has to omit the bacon for vegetarians... I tried tonight with friends who don't eat pork, and was happy to see them go for seconds. You just can't go wrong with this salad."
