I made this for a summer get-together. Some people absolutely loved it; some didn't like it at all. I guess it comes down to personal tastes. The only changes I would make are to add less tomatoes (I think one would be enough) and not nearly as much dressing. I used about a half a bottle and thought it was way too much. You can always add more, but you can't take it away once you've put it in.
I made this for our wedding guest and they all loved it.
