This IS a Dilly of a salad - we really enjoyed it - Cut it back to two servings and only used 1 tbsp of Hellmans low fat mayo - It was still delish

Very good and easy to make! This is a great salad to make at the end of the week as most of the ingredients I always have on hand and it's very adaptable. I made a few minor subsitutions such as using a good sprinkling of celery seeds instead of celery and dried onion flakes instead of onion but still stayed with the basic recipe and I don't think these changes affected the end result any. Thanks for sharing!
