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.""
