    So enjoyed this, I don't usually make a salad for a main meal but this was so easy and so very tasty. I didn't use the avocado but that is just personal taste and used some French dressing.  -  08 Dec 2012


    Easy to make and a nice change from an ordinary salad. (Although it took longer than 10 minutes prep time -- maybe I chop slowly :-) It really impressed my girlfriend!  -  31 Dec 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I am new to the "cooking" world, and this salad was excellent, a bit time consuming, but not difficult. Definately worth it. everyone loved it. I definately plan to make this salad again, and again, and again.  -  05 Dec 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
