"I love this salad, i found the recipe and made it while I was visiting my son and i have made it at least three more times. It is so easy and great to have as a side dish or as a main dish, i know i will keep making it all the time especially since I am a vegetarian o would recommend it"

"I liked it but too much ranch dressing. I will reduce it by one third."

"This is a nice simple creamy salad. It was a cinch to make and tasted great. It may need a touch more in the way of seasonings, or maybe I need a stronger flavored ranch dressing, but the flavor combination is still great. It also made alot!!!!! Great for a family gathering."
