Very nice blend of flavors. I agree with the other reviews that a half recipe of the dressing is plenty.
I really enjoyed this salad very much. I only made half the recipe of dressing and it made a full dressing bottle's worth. The salad itself is simple, yet looks very festive. The dressing is very tasty and went well with the salad ingredients.
Your Sister did good with this recipe. I can see why it is requested every year. I used Oven Dried Onion / Garlic Flakes for the onions so to keep the fat down. I also cut the dressing down by 1/2 but still had most of it left over. So I suggest making 1/4 of the recipe. I also used just a touch of sugar. I did have to add some fresh garden tomatoes. Yum!
