This salad is a favorite with everyone. I've even added cheese and sunflower seeds to it and there's never enough left at the bottom of the bowl for lunch the next day! Absolutely wonderful and simple. Read More

No matter how much vinegar and sugar I added the mayonnaise taste never left. I followed the recipe verbatim so I'm not sure what the others did to make it get such a high rating. Read More

This dressing is wonderful. After tasting the salad made as the recipe suggests I added red onion celery and red grapes. This more closely resembled the flavors in my Red Broccoli salad posted on this site. Very good Marsha! Read More

This is good for a side dish salad but not for the whole meal. I've seen variations of this which always include more ingredients. This could use something more. Read More

Needs something else like cheddar cheese cherry tomatoes. Liked it just need some other veggies. Used real bacon bits to speed things up. Read More

This is best if you add some cubed sharp cheddar cheese and maybe a little chopped red onion.:) Read More

This is a tasty salad and very quick to throw together. I chose this recipe as part of a soup and salad supper mostly because I had all the ingredients on hand (I don't usually have iceberg lettuce around but may buy it more often just to make this salad.) The dressing was a little sweet for my taste but that may have been my vinegar which was white wine vinegar. I added a little extra vinegar and some salt and pepper. I loved the crispy bacon with the sweetness of the dressing. I might add some matchstick carrots next time for some added crunch and color. Thanks for a very tasty recipe! Read More

I have not tried this particular salad but I have made the dressing to use in other salads. To this one I would add some radishes cut into bite size pieces. I am not a radish fan but have found I really like them using this salad. As for too many calories -- moderation is always the key. Thanks for the recipe. Read More

excellent. used splenda and reduced fat mayo for the dressing and it was still fantastic. also used a bag and a half of iceberg lettuce instead of messing around with washing and tearing an actual head of lettuce. Read More
