Sun-dried tomato dressing is a perfect complement to the peppers, cheese and pepperoni in this fun recipe I call "Pizzalicious Salad." For a change of pace, I sometimes omit the sun-dried tomato dressing and drizzle the mozzarella cubes with olive oil. —Lisa DeMarsh, Mount Solon, Virginia

"This recipe is excellent! I love pizza, so when I saw this recipe, I knew I had to try it. I have made it several times already for my husband. I use turkey pepperoni and shredded parmesan cheese instead of grated. I also don't add the Italian seasoning and garlic powder to the sun-dried tomato salad dressing (I buy Ken's Steakhouse brand), because I like the dressing the way it is, right out of the bottle. As my husband says, "It's a keeper!""
