Wonderful salad! My husband had a bowl of it before it had even gone into the fridge to marinate and declared it delicious. I couldn't find my balsamic vinegar so I used red wine vinegar instead. It was even better the next day. I will definitely bring this to summer picnics and potlucks. Next time I make it which will be very soon I'll use the balsamic and perhaps a touch of freshly ground pepper. Thanks for a great recipe. Read More

The dressing for this salad ws really good but I would change the variety of vegetables next time because the tomatoes made everything all slimy and I wasn't liking the celery either. Otherwise...this was pretty good! Read More

Good...this was the base idea and I made changes which turned out well. Used only 1 green pepper (all I had) zuchinni instead of cucumber 1 tomato and 1/2 REGULAR onion; marble cheddar cheese instead of monterey jack (again didn't have it). Did not have italian dressing mix so I used a garlic balsamic vinegar that was hanging around in the fridge 1/8 cup of it and 1/8 cup of the vinegar and that was great. But any store-bought liquid italian dressing would work great too. Everyone liked it! Read More

My husband and I thought this was GREAT! I am not a big fan of tomatoes so I only used 1/2 what the recipe called for and doubled the cucumber which I love. Easy recipe to put in whatever you like. Read More

I am snacking on the leftovers of this WONDERFUL salad as "we speak" - my "celebrity" and family company yesterday enjoyed it immensely. The only change I made was to add red orange and yellow peppers to the green one which of course made for an extremely colorful presentation. The taste was so fresh - wonderful recipe - thank you so much. Read More

YUMMMMM! I love this salad! Of course I reduced the red onion by at least 1/2 because it was too strong 1st time. It's great for summer get-togethers! Read More

Very good and very easy to improvise to accomodate whatever is in the fridge. I used crumbled bleu cheese rather than shredded cheese and imagine that feta would be good as well. Easy and tasty what more could you ask for? Read More
