This is a really good salad recipe. I used mayo instead of the french dressing and I added some garlic and onion powders just out of personal preference. Nice cool summer supper. Read More

I used a homemade low-calorie ranch dressing instead of french dressing and the garbanzo beans I used were organic. I chose to make lettuce wraps out of this salad. What I did was add some finely shredded lettuce to the salad not as much that was called for and I wrapped the salad in leaves of lettuce. This was tasty and quite filling. I think that this was made much better by using a homemade dressing. There's more than enough for two more lunches. Read More

Very yummy! I did not use cucumbers (don't like them) and added extra beans. I used red wine vinaigrette dressing and LOVED the taste combination! Thanks for the idea! Read More

This is good! I used a homemade french dressing that has lemon juice in the recipe and it really brightened up the flavor. Read More

I substituted chicken salad for tuna, mayo for french dressing, left out the cucumber (I don't like "crunchy things" in my chicken/tuna salads) and added a bit of cilantro. My husband and I liked this a lot, and he doesn't usually like chicken salad. The eggs seemed to make it creamy. Very tasty, will make again. Read More

This is a good salad! I skipped the cucumbers as I didn't have any but added some red onion. I actually ate it rolled up in the lettuce rather than tossed in it. Little salad burrito. Mmm. Read More

Very good and easy dish! I didn't have cucumbers so I used pickles and miracle whip instead of French dressing. I also topped it on spinach. Delicious. Read More
