I was between several ratings for this one... I had half of this immediately after making it and the sour cream jut *made* the dish.. it was delicious. However when I had the rest later I thought that the flavours had changed quite radically and it had a subtle but pronounced sourness that definiately wasn't there before. If I had only had it *only* later I probably would have rated it 2 or 3 stars, and if I had had all of it immediately I might have given it 5. I decided on 4 stars becuase it is excellent if eaten immediately and if I need to make this in advance I will mix everything in except the sour cream and add that diectly before eating. That way I can enjoy it at it's very best. Please see my rating system: 4 stars for a recipe that works very well indeed if you handle it right. Thanks!

I reduced this to make a small batch for lunch and served on romaine leaves instead of in the shell. It is very attractive, however I would chop my pineapple and ham smaller next time. For some reason I found the cherry tomatoes an odd fit, but that is strictly personal preference. Thank you for sharing your recipe!

Great salad, I would have liked the dressing to have a bit more flavour in it. Otherwise it is great. I will make it again, but I'll prbably play around with the dressing. Thanks for posting!
