    Very Good
    Made this today and it was very good, I also added cucumbers, low sodium black beans and grated mozzeralla cheese, this was a main course dish, not a side. I doubled everything, big family. For a little zip, I added a little apple cider vinegar and some honey to the dressing. - 5/22/11

    I make this all the time it is one of our favorites. I have to leave out the onions DH's stomach can't handle them. I add celery for a little extra crunch and it I have it red, green or yellow peppers it is just pretty then. - 6/20/09
