Crabby I just love your recipes. I make this several times a year. I Originally gave you 4 stars but I discovered that the choice of dressing makes a big difference. Do not waist your time on Kraft.. it is too oily. Olimpia Dukacus is great, if you can't find it, look for a better priced vinigarette.

This is a very good cold salad. The real secret I think is to make it a day ahead of time. It was really better the next day after the flavors had a chance to meld

This stuff is just good! I made it with red onions and I used "Reed's Italian dressing". It was so good. I can't believe my kids and hubby ate it, usually this is a "Mom dish" as they call it, but they loved it. I did also add a handful of chopped parsley.
