MY REVIEW

"This is one of our favorites. Great for a potluck. Good the way it is, but I've also added diced boiled eggs and/or sliced olives. Easy to adapt to depending on who you're serving. I've only ever used light mayo and it tastes fine and reduces the fat. You won't be sorry you tried it."

"I didn't have any carrots so used peas. I used dried onions instead of fresh because I don't like raw onions. I also increased the milk to 1/3 cup and the mayo to 1 cup and it was much more moist and creamier. Will definately make again!"
