    A great tasting and refreshing salad. Unless you like alot of onions, I recommend using a red onion and eliminating the yellow onion. I also left out the anchovies since we don't care for these and used iceberg lettuce in place of romaine.  -  14 Sep 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Very nice! I didn't add the onion or the egg to this. I added croutons. I think it is easily customizable to your tastes...the dressing really makes this salad, the other ingredients can easily be interchangeable.  -  01 Apr 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I just went out to a restaurant and they served a tomatoe salad. I liked it so much I wanted to duplicate it. I found this recipe and tried it and it comes very close. I really liked this.  -  02 Oct 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
