Loved this salad! To reduce the fat I used a scant quarter cup of oil and kept all the other dressing ingredients about the same and it came out great. Thanks for posting.

I swapped the vegies to what I had on hand but made the dressing as per the recipe. I used onion, red pepper and mushrooms as I had no peas. The salad dressing is terrific and the versatility of the recipe makes it a total winner for me. Made and so enjoyed for Zingo ZWT 6.

Edited to say that the salad was even better the next day, once the dressing marinated the rice and veggies! *** Wonderful salad - loved loved loved the dressing! Made as is, except I used basmati rice, yellow bell pepper instead of celery and canned peas. This makes quite a filling lunch! Thanks Laffer!
