Many of the ingredients in a deluxe pizza go into this no-hassle salad. Feel free to substitute pepperoni for the Canadian bacon. The dressing is great on other salads, too.—Wendy Nickel, Kiester, MN

"I have made this salad for years. Love it! Only I use red onion rings, red pepper cut in small strips and sometimes substitute halved grape tomatoes. The tomato dressing is quite good. It is also good with Bernstein's Light Cheese Fantastico dressing."
