I made this a little lighter by using a third cup of reduced fat mayonnaise, reduced fat sour cream and nonfat greek yogurt. I did add some fresh ground pepper. This is a great salad but I think it could be fantastic with some spices thrown in. It was a little bland. Next time, I'll add in a couple tablespoons of homemade dry ranch dressing mix.

This was the most gross recipe I have ever made or tried!!

This got rave reviews from lunch guests, with everyone clamoring for the recipe. I cut back on the sugar in the dressing, and splenda could be used to make this a low carbers "mock potato salad". Delicious!

This is one of the most flavorful salads I have ever had. I used Miracle whip and decreased sugar to 1/4 cup. I have to be careful or could eat it all myself.

This was one of the top 10 recipes that I have found on this site. My wife raved about it and we had very few leftovers, but she wanted to take those to work with her. Followed the recipe exactly, but next time I will cut back a bit on mayo. This was truly exceptional.

Enjoyed this recipe as a nice change of pace. I would increase the bacon bits if doing again. The kids ate it too. Would be nice for a summer potluck dish.

My family really likes this salad! My parents are on Atkins, so I substituted Splenda for the sugar. It's a great way to get your veggies!

This was a hit at Easter. Many family members asked for the recipe. My husband liked it because of the fresh veggies used. It took longer to make than I expected, but was certainly worth it with all the compliments I received!
