Wonderful salad! My husband had a bowl of it before it had even gone into the fridge to marinate and declared it delicious. I couldn't find my balsamic vinegar so I used red wine vinegar instead. It was even better the next day. I will definitely bring this to summer picnics and potlucks. Next time I make it, which will be very soon, I'll use the balsamic and perhaps a touch of freshly ground pepper. Thanks for a great recipe.

The dressing for this salad ws really good, but I would change the variety of vegetables next time, because the tomatoes made everything all slimy, and I wasn't liking the celery either. Otherwise...this was pretty good!

Good...this was the base idea and I made changes which turned out well. Used only 1 green pepper (all I had), zuchinni instead of cucumber, 1 tomato, and 1/2 REGULAR onion; marble cheddar cheese instead of monterey jack (again didn't have it). Did not have italian dressing mix, so I used a garlic balsamic vinegar that was hanging around in the fridge, 1/8 cup of it and 1/8 cup of the vinegar, and that was great. But any store-bought, liquid italian dressing would work great too. Everyone liked it!

My husband and I thought this was GREAT! I am not a big fan of tomatoes, so I only used 1/2 what the recipe called for and doubled the cucumber, which I love. Easy recipe to put in whatever you like.

This is pretty good. It's a great way to use up veggies. I made it as a side dish for club sandwiches.

YUMMMMM! I love this salad! Of course, I reduced the red onion by at least 1/2 because it was too strong 1st time. It's great for summer get-togethers!

I am snacking on the leftovers of this WONDERFUL salad, as "we speak" - my "celebrity" and family company yesterday enjoyed it immensely. The only change I made was to add red, orange and yellow peppers to the green one which of course, made for an extremely colorful presentation. The taste was so fresh - wonderful recipe - thank you so much.

Very good and very easy to improvise to accomodate whatever is in the fridge. I used crumbled bleu cheese rather than shredded cheese and imagine that feta would be good as well. Easy and tasty, what more could you ask for?
