    Most family members enjoyed this. I think it has a great flavor, however I did double the dressing portion. The 2 year old even ate it!  -  23 Sep 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very delicious recipe - but I agree that the onion is too overpowering. I bought the smallest red onion I could find, and used half, and that was still too much. I suggest maybe 1/4 small red onion. Otherwise, very easy and quick to make!  -  20 May 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
