    Chef #379453's Note:

    Saw this recipe on Taste of Home and had to try it. Their recipe called for a creamy Italian Salad Dressing and I used a Lite version, and called for 1 cup fresh broccoli florets, which was the only thing I did not have on hand, so I left it out. This salad is so quick and easy and is perfect for a hot summer day. So quick and easy, perfect for a Hot Summer Day! It is sure to be a family favorite and the summer has just begun!

      Just saw this today, and went out to get the ingredients. I used chopped Roma tomates, did add the broccoli (nice), and used my own Italian salad dressing. Also used chopped red onion rather than the scallions. Lovely salad, thanks so much,,,,will be making again.

      Made this for DH, his dad and me for lunch the other day...delicious. I did add some pea pods (that I blanched real quick) but otherwise followed the instructions. Served with some crackers and what an easy dish. Thank you for posting. Made for My 3 Chefs June 2012 tag game.
