Made this for Easter as I was asked to bring a salad. Everyone loved it! We all agreed that you could use most any combination of vegetables. They ate it all! Came home and made another small batch for myself!

The colors of this salad were beautiful, especially when served at Christmas time, but the flavor was delicious. Quick and easy to make. Love this recipe!

This was wonderful! I made it to take to a Thanksgiving dinner because I wanted something a little lighter than all the heavy casseroles. It disappeared! Added yellow pepper and used white wine vinegar.

I have added red, yellow, green and orange peppers as well as red cabbage to this and everyone loves it. They just add more color and flavor. Still excellent with or without my additions. You can't go wrong with this wonderful salad.

Very easy recipe to make and very tasty. We let the veggies marinate for 2.5 hours instead of 3 hours as recommended and it was still good.

I made this salad for a buffet dinner and everyone loved it. I thought I had plenty, but it was all eaten! I went exactly by the recipe, except I mistakenly bought Hidden Valley ranch "dip" mix instead of "salad dressing" mix. It was still excellent.
