MY REVIEW

I made this today and left the mayo out. It was delicious and filled me up. What a great help for my outlook to "eat healthy".

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 4, 2010

I made this after working all day as a salad chef in our university's kitchen. I was so starving, and it only took 10 minutes. I followed the recipe exactly, except cut the mayo in half and added 1/4 cup honey mustard dressing. It was divinity. Filled me up real good too!! Will be making often!!!
