"I made this salad today for lunch. All I can say is Winner! I made a couple of changes. I toasted the walnuts, and added a cooked egg. I omitted the yogurt since I didn't have any but the mayo was perfect. This recipe is not only easy but delicious. I highly recommend it as a Volunteer Field Editor."

"Made this with canned chicken instead, very good, very additive. Have never used the Monterey Jack cheese, I don't think the salad needs it. One of my favorites!"
