I have made this salad several times, and it is always well received by family and friends. After the first time of following the recipe exactly, I learned that it calls for way too much sugar. I found reducing the sugar in half greatly enhances the outcome.
My husband and I both love this recipe. I served with either a strawberry vinaigrette or a red wine vinaigrette. Eat it as a side or add some diced or shredded rotisserie chicken to it just before serving for your entree. Very Good!

It is a very good salad and I have made it before, so this time I decreased the sugar to 1/4 cup and it was just as good.
I make the dressing in the pan that I cooked bacon in, removing most of the fat, add balsamic vinegar and garlic powder (just a sprinkle) and a little sugar. It is one of my family's favorites!!
I have a mixed review on this--the salad was great, however, I really didn't like the dressing. I tasted like all oil. I used a strawberry vinagarette instead.
I have been making this salad for years. The dressing can be made the day before and pulsed in a blender. I add dry, seasoned. Stuffing mix and toss just before serving. It is always a hit at potluck!,
This was a great salad and I will make it again for adults, but it was not at all a hit with any of the kids. Not one of the 8 kids in attendance would even touch it with all the onions, mushrooms, and vinegar as ingredients. One kid did pick out some boiled egg. But they loved the cherry Jello I fixed just in case.
