"This salad is excellent. It is a family favorite. I use shredded parmesan cheese (not grated) and add craisins and thin-sliced red onion. The dressing really enhances the salad."

"This is a delicious salad. My family loves it. The dressing is plentiful, so I use it on other salads, too.

My family calls me the 'salad Queen" because I'm always asked to bring the salad for family gatherings. Thanks TOH for the great recipes! I've never had a bad experience with salad recipes from TOH."

"I have made this salad for years. It's so easy to make and everyone that tries it loves it. I usually make the dressing the day before I serve it, and put the rest of the salad together the day it's served. I love this recipe!"
