This recipe looked great to me, because I had everything for it on hand, and it didn't dissapoint. I made one substitution, and one addition. Pickle relish is not one of my favorite foods, so I used chopped capers instead, and I added a tablespoon of a spinach dip mix that includes a bit of dried onion and dill. I liked this better on the second day, after the flavors had time to mingle overnight. Next time, I might add some chopped green onion and some extra egg, and cut back the sugar to make the dressing a bit less rich. Overall, I really liked this salad, and would definitely make it again, especially for a cool meal on a hot day. Thanks for posting!

I made this recipe for the " Summertime Salad Snapshots ". Since I was the only one to eat this, I did make a few changes to the recipe. They are as follows, for the salad part I used 1 egg, 2 ounces of pasta , 1 cup of frozen peas and carrots.For the chicken, I had some fried leftover chicken and used that.For the dressing, I adjusted those ingredients according to my taste. To fancy it up a bit , this was served on a bed of lettuce with tomato wedges and crackers on the side.I really enjoyed the taste very much. Thanks for posting and, " Keep Smiling :) "

Made this on sunday for an easy lunch. Was lovely! I did omit the carrots as I just wasn't in the mood for it. But added some to my hubby's dish as he loves carrots. His was gone before I could sit down to my plate. I also added a dash of McCormick's Grinder Ground Peppercorn Meledoy personal choice. Enjoy! (Deserved more stars than I could give since hubby really liked it. ;-)

Mmmmm...all my favorite things (besides chocolate!) in one bowl! This is a colorful, healthy salad that serves well as a main dish for a light meal. I used whole wheat rotini and fat free mayo to skinny this up a bit. Plus, I had only 1 cup frozen peas, but it still seemed to fill out the salad nicely. I will enjoy this for school lunches along with some crackers and fruit. Thanks GrumpyChef! Made for Potluck Tag.
