    This was super YUMMY!! My whole family loved it. The small market in our town didn't have blue cheese so I made it without the cheese and it was still wonderful. I am looking forward to adding the blue cheese next time. Thanks Jim  -  05 Apr 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I am a huge fan of French dressing. I won't eat salad unless I can find a good recipe for dressing. My husband even liked this. Great because you only need a little dressing to get the flavor throughout the whole salad. Will definitely keep this stocked in my fridge!  -  07 Apr 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    WOW! Super flavor! I omitted the blue cheese because I didn't have any on hand, and used dried minced onions (followed conversion on side of jar) to save time. I added 1t Worcestershire sauce. EXCELLENT! I will try adding the blue cheese next time. 9 servings makes 3 cups, so plan to have a LARGE jar, or scale down. Great recipe! Thanks to your Grandmother! 5++++  -  07 Jul 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
