    I love the dressing! I mixed and matched veggies, but the dressing is what really makes this tasty.  -  16 Apr 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Liked the salad, but did not like the dressing at all. 3T of mustard combined with 3T of salad dressings & brown sugar is not a mixture I'm going to try again.  -  14 Aug 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
