Love chopped salads but this was a little bland. I upped the vinegar and sugar and that helped. We liked the crunch and the peanuts, but will play a little more with the seasoning to bring the flavor up.

Found this recipe 5 months ago and have made it at least 6 times. Followed recipe as is. I get multiple requests for the recipe every time.

I made this yesterday for our ladies get-together/supper and it was BLAH! I followed the recipe to a T. Really thought it was going to be great with all the great ratings but for me, it was not. Won't make this one again.

Thanks to Madeline for a most delectable salad. I served this at an Easter buffet luncheon and received nothing but raves. It was a simple salad to assemble and the combination of vegetables, bacon, and dressing was a winner. I upped my bacon strips to eight and added 1/3 cup of coarsely grated sharp cheddar cheese (for color mostly). Otherwise, I made no changes.

Really good. BTW, the mayonnaise, sugar and vinegar is the dressing I have always used on my cole slaw using equal parts sugar and vinegar.

It is a very good salad, but much too high in fat, sugar and cholesterol for my healthy family. I made it with a lesser amount of low fat mayo, Stevia rather than sugar and toasted sliced almonds. Much lighter and healthier, and still very tasty!

Followed the recipe, took it to a church potluck and it was enjoyed by all. I'll definitely be making this again.

Very good!! I thought the addition of peanuts would be awful but I was wrong. Wen I make it again, I think I will add some shredded cheddar for color to brighten it up a bit.
