overall very yummy and with a nice array of festive colors. my only complaints are that it was a bit too sweet and swimming in dressing. next time i make this i'll halve the dressing recipe and further halve the amount of sugar. Read More

My husband loved this recipe he went back for seconds. Everyone else that has tried it has loved it. I used red onion instead of pimentos - personal preference. Dressing was great as is. Read More

This came out great - topped with tomato basil feta cheese and a little ground chipotle pepper for color and spice. I took the other reviewers suggestion and halved the dressing formula with sugar cut back to 2 Tb.It was just wet enough and there was enough marinade to coat everything as it was stirred up again. It was a little sweet and savory at the same time. Thanks for sharing. Read More

This was delicious and just what I was looking for! I left out the green pepper and pimento as a personal preference added a little chopped red onion for color and a little crushed red pepper for color and spice. The dressing was perfect not too sweet! Happy New Year1 Read More

my sister-in-law makes a version of this and tops it with tomato basil feta cheese. The cheese is wonderful with the dressing. Read More

Delicious salad but I leave the celery out due to my personal preference. But everyone I have served it to really likes it. I have also substituted the sugar with splenda and it was good as well. Thanks Kate! Read More
