      Excellent! The kind of creamy salad you'd find at the deli of a gourmet grocer. Left out the bacon bits to make it vegetarian. My only complaint is that 1 teaspoon of ground red pepper (cayenne) is way too much for the delicate flavors of these veggies. It was too spicy and we normally like spicy. Next time I'll use only 1/2 teaspoon.
