REVIEW: recipe rating
I drain this before serving. Very good flavor. The hard part is slicing everythign so thin.

I made this salad tonight and added a tomato along with one bunch of broccoli. The dressing was the perfect combination. My entire family enjoyed it and my son went back for seconds!

I added a thinly sliced apple (both to extend the salad a little and to get rid of my last apple). It was delicious! And yes, the recipe really does need the full 15 tsp. of sugar.

15 teaspoons sugar? Is that right?

I really love this recipe. It's easy and really tasty - I also added some chopped tomato. Have sent it to several friends.
