For us, this was on the bland side as others have indicated. I never use straight mayo as a dressing in a salad like this. It's too thick and I think it overwhelms the taste of the other ingredients. I always use a mixture of mayo and sour cream, thinned with milk. To this, I added Old Bay, celery seed, the red pepper flakes as well as salt and pepper. Even after that adjustment it was relatively lacking in flavor, despite having a combination of many of my favorite ingredients. After a few bites, I added a few sliced green olives on top - it helped, but I wouldn't include them in the salad itself. I really can't put my finger on what exactly would make this a "good" recipe for me, but as this is we probably won't repeat it.
