Rated as 4.69 out of 5 Stars

"This pretty blend of garden-fresh vegetables and zesty herb dressing tastes as good as it looks! By microwaving the asparagus a bit before adding the other veggies, Patricia Alderete of Lowell, Indiana keeps cool in the kitchen."

No flavor. Had to add extra vinegar and salt to eat it. Not a keeper - sorry
