Made this for a kid birthday party. Followed the recipe exactly and it was a hit with adults and kids. Will make again!

I don't ordinarily enjoy chunks of cheese in my salad, but in this one it really works. I mixed in some cooked chicken to make this a main dish. Delicious, particularly in hot weather. Thanks for posting!

I'm a big fan of salads like this even when the weather outside isn't all that warm! I particularly liked the inclusion of the chopped sweet pickle & was generous with the amount of that ingredient! Will be making this one again, for sure! [Made & reviewed for one of my adopted chefs in this Spring's Pick A Chef event]
