Quick and easy. Tastes best when it sits for a while before serving. I change up the veggies every time I make it, with whatever I have on hand. Carrots and celery work well.

Different taste and simple but a bit too sweet for me. The dressing tastes like Catalina salad dressing. Read More

Great alternative to all the macaroni/mayo salads! I made it as written with the exception of a little less sugar and got many compliments at a party this summer. My kids liked it too. Will make this regularly - thank you for sharing this recipe! Read More
