    And here I thought I invented this recipe!! I use fat free peppercorn ranch dressing and believe it or not, montreal steak spice for seasoning. Awesome, easy salad without lettuce!!! - 7/15/09

    very good and seems as tho you can change things around a bit and still not hurt the caloric intake much. I like the idea of fat-free yogurt (or maybe even sour cream?). Might crack some black peppercorns over it and maybe add some red onion and zucchini. I'm real big on throwing veggies into everyt - 7/15/09

    Sliced the cucumbers, instead and used FF Balsamic Viniagrette...then sprinkled with crumbled Brinza Cheese. (feta will work also). (Brinza is the Romanian version of Feta). - 6/5/08

    I use FF Italian or FF Classic Caeser dressing, add some sliced black olives and a few feta crumbles. Little more fat but it's mostly good fat and oh so yummy! A favorite with my family and most of the ingredients come fresh from my garden. - 7/15/09

    This was a really nice, creamy, light side dish for the burgers we had the other night. I accidentally used low-fat Miracle Whip instead of mayo, and when I make it next time I'll be sure to use mayo. The Miracle Whip just changed the flavor, and I think mayo would definitely be better! - 9/3/07
