    A great way to use up those salad ingredients in the fridge. Remember to "dress" the salad, don't "drown" it! Looks pretty served inside a lettuce leaf cup.  -  30 Dec 2008  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)


    Very quick to make and tasted great. Did not have any celery and left out the onion as I thought that may be a bit too strong.  -  10 Dec 2017  (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
