"This was great! Added some kalamata olives, pimientos, and artichokes to make in impressive main dish. Wow."
"I usually add grilled chicken to the salad. Also, this is hands down the best salad dressing I've ever had! I make the dressing a day ahead to let the flavors blend and always double the batch. There's never any leftovers when I bring this to a gathering!"
"Excellent favor and a keeper! If I double the recipe again and would only use 3 garlic cloves for dressing. Everyone in our group requested this recipe."
"Love, Love, Love this salad for all occasions. When I take it to work or to a potluck I have to remember to bring the recipe because it is always requested."
"This is the best salad ever. The dressing is excellent."
