  • Very Good
    I cut back on the lemon juice and skipped the olives. Good salad, thanks for sharing. - 4/25/17

  • O.K.
    I tried making this tonight for our 4th of July barbecue.
    When I put on the sauce, we tasted it and it was way too sour with the lemon juice. I ended up rinsing off the salad and saved it with a homemade Italian dressing I made. Other than the dressing, the salad was good.
