"So easy to put together! We added extras in the form of pre-cooked bacon pieces and sliced cherry tomatoes. We put the almonds on the side for those who wanted them. Great summertime recipe!"

"Delicious! I made a "loaded" salad with the white meat from a rotisserie chicken. We loved the "bite" of the Dijon! Served it with hard boiled egg and put the salad into pita pockets to eat. Thank you, Lynne!"

"I liked the other ingredients but found the dressing too strong. Would make again but with a different dressing."
