MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 16, 2014

I have been making this salad for over 10 years! Family and friends love for me to make it! I do use Kalamata Olives instead of black olives for added yumminess!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 4, 2011

I made this for the very first time for some friends we had over. When the meal was done I noticed that everything in the bowl was too! My teenage children even liked it. It's 4 days later and I am making it again for just our family for dinner. It was truly a "Taste Of Home" evening: as I served the salad with White Chili and the Pumpkin Angel Food Cake. All three are "Keepers."
