I had used this recipe when it was first featured in Taste of Home. I did make the following adjustments to the recipe as follows: I'd used 6 Italian plum tomatoes & one large sliced onion( red or white or yellow). For the dressing: I'd used 1 packet of Equal sweetener, 1/2 tsp. poppy seeds and 1/4 tsp. Old Bay seasoning. I don't use tarragon vinegar-I've used red wine vinegar instead! If olive oil is not available, I use canola oil! (I've learned to make adjustments on a particular recipe if the ingredient called for isn't available for me!) I didn't have celery seed, so I'd used the poppy seeds & I'd used Old bay seasoning instead of lemon pepper seasoning! For me it worked out! I hadn't had the green onion available, so I'd used one large red or white or yellow onion! This salad was delicious! Thank you, Marie Hoyer, for sharing this recipe! It is a keeper! delowenstein
