Recipe by Dancer^

This is so easy and so pretty. It makes a nice summer lunch, just add some fruit. I like Homemade french or Italian dressing on it.

Love this salad! I made it the first time as written, and it was an absolute hit with my family. But I have since found that this recipe lends itself to many different variations. Today I added some dill weed to the cream cheese. Awesome! I have added several different veggies, usually what I have on hand, cut in small dices. I have made it without the blue cheese in the mix, and served it with blue cheese dressing. The possibilities are endless! I make this often, and we never tire of it!Thanks so much Dancer!
