The first time I tried this salad I followed the recipe exactly and it was way too salty for us. Made it again yesterday and used garlic powder instead of garlic salt. MUCH BETTER! This one's a keeper -- reminds us of the salad at that Italian restaurant. Read More

Neither my husband or I really liked this dressing too much. Other than that it is a pretty mainstream salad so it just wasn't that great. Read More

Not as good as I had hoped. Next time I would add more tomatoes and cut back on the olives. Read More
