    Use your favorite Italian dressing. The MSG is not necessary, just use garlic salt in place of it.  -  04 Feb 2015


    This was wonderful-definitely needs time in the fridge so the flavors can blend properly. It tasted even better the second day. I served this to some friends, and now my friend's husband is constantly requesting this!  -  28 Jan 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    vey good - very filling. I used only half the italian dressing, and used 2 (14 oz)cans of diced tomatoes, and 2 avocadoes. Served at my husband's birthday party (made the salsa the night before) and received many compliments, and requests for the recipe.  -  14 Jul 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
