Very, very good Marisa! I didn't have any bean sprouts on hand, so I threw in cucs and grape tomatoes. I only put in a tablespoon of sugar and it was fine. I also added onion powder, a bit of dill and a touch of italian seasonings. Thanks so much!

This recipe is quick and easy to make, and so delicious. Everyone wanted to take some home with them!

Like others, I changed this a little. I added a tablespoon of olive oil instead of the half cup of salad oil, and left out the onion. It was absolutely delicious, I will definitely make this again.

Very good! I omitted the sprouts and added almonds instead. I also didn't realize this was a marinate overnight dish, so I ate it about 1 hour after refrigerating. It was delicious!

I ended up altering this recipe a bit but never would have thought to add the ingredients that the recipe called for if I had not read it first. I took out the sprouts and substituted olive oil. I served it for Christmas and almost everyone ate some..even with allll the other non green food on the table. (my family is mainly meat and potato greens)

This makes a quick winter "salad." If you don't like sweet pickles it's probably not for you, but then you'd know that from the vinegar and sugar in the recipe. I like to add water chestnuts for some crunch.

I did not care for this at all.
