    Excellent and easy to make.  -  08 Jul 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    hmmmm . . . tomatoes and mustard . . . 2 of my least favorite things, yet 2 of my husband's faves. But they say a way to a man's heart is through his stomach and I am jonesing for a new digital camera that costs $900 so I made the salad. And to my surprise it is quite good. We had nicely ripened yet firm tomatoes and this made huge amount of salad. My dh hasn't tried it yet, but I know he will love, love, love it. You think the mustard is going to be to much, but it isn't. It makes a great summer salad! I will make this again and I will eat it, too, even though I doubted the recipe at first.  -  08 May 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was a wonderful addition to my Easter meal. The trio of mustards complemented the ham beautifully. Much to my husband's dismay, there were no leftovers, so I'll have to make this dish again very soon. Can't say enough about it - it was just so good!  -  17 Apr 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
