    Great stuff. When I am out of Salad Supreme this still is pretty good stuff by adding individual spices listed on the SS bottle. After refrigerating overnight, the day I am serving I sometimes add a bit more salad dressing. Also, you can interchange lots of ingredients: veggies, cubes of cheese, pepperoni slices or ham cubes, etc. This is easily customizable.  -  29 May 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was a crowd pleaser! I added feta cheese and used Caesar Italian dressing. It was great!  -  09 Jul 2000  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
