    This is pretty close to something I make myself. I omit the peppers and onions and add cucumbers, black olives, and Italian salami that has been sliced and quartered. You can also add shredded cheese of your choice for extra flavor.  -  19 Oct 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Awesome!! I do not add the mushrooms because my kids to not like them but I LOVE this recipe and so does my husband. Sometimes we add more like cucumbers, pepperjack cheese, cheddar cheese and pepperoni. Yum!  -  29 Nov 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Fast, easy, good. Also added a small can of chopped black olives. Made this again the other night and added about 1/3 cup chopped zucchini which really absorbed the dressing well.  -  28 Aug 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
