"This salad was very refreshing and even tasted better the next day. I didn't change the recipe in any way other than adding a few more items. I omitted the lettuce for broccoli slaw mix. I added about a 1/2 lb. of seedless red grapes cut length wise as well as a half cup of chopped walnuts. I also added 1 tsp. of Worcester sauce to the mayo mix for an added flavor. I have used both chicken and salad shrimp both taste great! Thanks."

"Very good!!. And so pretty. Did the presentation with the cantaloupe like flower petals, sliced 3 strawberries in fan shape, and sprinkled with toasted almonds. I'm sure it would get raves at pot luck dinners."
