    Absolutely delicious! I make this over and over again. Have passed the recipe on to many friends. Great for any type of gathering and makes a huge amount.

    I followed the recipe exactly but it was too bland and didn't have much flavor. Maybe adding another package of the dry dressing mix would improve it, but it wasn't good enough that I'd consider trying again.
