    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!

    This is nice and refreshing. I did not serve it in the pineapple shell because it was just for me and my daughter. This is exactly the kind of thing she loves to eat. We did not have any celery and that would have added a nice crunch, but it was still wonderful. Thanks!

    We really enjoyed this light and refreshing salad. I used light sour cream, and the flavor of the dressing was subtle, and blended real well with the ingredients. Very nice, and low fat, too. Thanks for posting a good one, BLUE ROSE.
