I made this a little lighter by using a third cup of reduced fat mayonnaise reduced fat sour cream and nonfat greek yogurt. I did add some fresh ground pepper. This is a great salad but I think it could be fantastic with some spices thrown in. It was a little bland. Next time I'll add in a couple tablespoons of homemade dry ranch dressing mix. Read More

This got rave reviews from lunch guests with everyone clamoring for the recipe. I cut back on the sugar in the dressing and splenda could be used to make this a low carbers "mock potato salad". Delicious! Read More

This is one of the most flavorful salads I have ever had. I used Miracle whip and decreased sugar to 1/4 cup. I have to be careful or could eat it all myself. Read More

This was one of the top 10 recipes that I have found on this site. My wife raved about it and we had very few leftovers but she wanted to take those to work with her. Followed the recipe exactly but next time I will cut back a bit on mayo. This was truly exceptional. Read More

Enjoyed this recipe as a nice change of pace. I would increase the bacon bits if doing again. The kids ate it too. Would be nice for a summer potluck dish. Read More

I made this for the first time today and I don't think there's going to be any left for dinner! I only used 1\4 cup of sugar but I added a few more bacon bits and an extra tsp. of vinegar. Really good. Read More

This was a hit at Easter. Many family members asked for the recipe. My husband liked it because of the fresh veggies used. It took longer to make than I expected but was certainly worth it with all the compliments I received! Read More

Delicious. Cut the sugar to 1/4 cup or less. Splenda would be good in this to cut carbs. Big hit at parties. Easy to make. I like to cut the cauliflower up into really small pieces. I use rice vinegar and that gives it a really great flavor. Read More
