      Love the pesto dressing, didn't add any milk. The salad was good as well, nice combo.

      Hard to believe I'm the first to review this undiscovered gem! This was a great tasting salad that was so easy to put together and looked impressive on the plate. I made the dressing several hours in advance and refrigerated until serving time. For the ingredients with choices listed, I used sour cream in the dressing, and mozza cheese, ham, salami and green pepper in the salad. Left out the onion.
