Reviews for Veggie Spiral Salad
"Even the kids loved it"
"Probably the best pasta salad I've ever made. Added a grilled chicken breast to make it into a meal. Used Manchego cheese (available at Costco) instead of Swiss for extra flavor. Next time, I will kick it up another notch by adding either toasted slivered almonds, or cashew halves or pistachios."
"Great side dish for a barbeque, although I added a bit of Salad Supreme spice. Yum! Guests and family really enjoyed it.(Edited for grammatical errors)"
"Use Gazebo Room Greek salad dressing. Much tastier."
"Great for a hot day like today. I only gave it four stars, because I didn't use the Italian dressing, I used Kraft's Coleslaw dressing, we don't care for italian dressing, and added smoked salmon to it. Next time I will use ranch. Use quite a bit more dressing than was called for."
