A big hit with our family and a great summer meal. I added some chopped red and green peppers for color and because we like peppers. Added a little oregano to the dressing which I increased by half . Will be adding this to the rotation. Read More

Was easy and the salad/dressing ratio was perfect. (When I made the dressing I thought it wouldn’t be enough and it was- try it as specified!). It was very tasty. I had no peas left, so I just omitted those. I also added my eggs directly into the salad and mixed it in with the rest. Yum! Read More
