I have been making this recipe for years. However, I have always added a good amount of olives both green and black sliced! Yum
Donna John
What a great idea! I love olives. Will definitely do that next time. Carol Masotta
Debbie Owens
I can't wait to make this!
Sounds good with the olives
Iā€™d add celery too
Kay Ayana
It could use some celery and dill relish. I also recommend using granulated garlic instead of minced garlic as minced garlic over power's the other flavors in the salad.
Donna John
Yes! Doctor it up to suite your own tastes. :-)
Made this for my wife and I, loved it.
2 of my favorites combined. Next time I'm gonna try using potatoes.
