    This was really tasty and attractive. Enjoyed it very much. Will make again and again.  -  27 Jul 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    If you let this salad sit too long, the water will start to leach out of the veggies and the whole thing becomes really runny. I thought the taste of this salad was a little funny, but I forgot to add the french dressing. Either way, as first it tasted just fine, then after a day or two, it was yucky. Guess you have to have the french dressing to make a fair review, but overall, it wasn't that great.  -  14 Apr 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I took this recipe to my "end of the season" Garden Club luncheon. Everyone loved it and asked for the recipe.  -  24 May 2000  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
