    I make almost the same recipe for all our cook outs and holidays. The only thing different is I also add to mine pepperoni, cauliflower, chopped up cucumber, and use shells instead of spaghetti.The shells hold the dressing better.  -  10 Jul 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I also make this all the time. I add italian marinated chicken strips and I use the Salad Supreme Seasoning. I think the recipe actually is supposed to say Salad Sumpreme Seasoning, not Italian Seasoning. Try the Salad Seasoning you will love it. I also add grated cheese and no cheddar.  -  21 Jul 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Off and on I have kept this in my fridge for my children to snack on for years. I use parmesan instead of cheddar and vary the veggies. Often I will toss in quartered pepperoni slices or ham cubes. Thank you.  -  11 Dec 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
