Delicious! I made it with fat-free Italian salad dressing, light, (low-fat) Miracle Whip, and low-fat sour cream. It is still scrumptious!!

Although it's not summer, I had to try this. It sounded so good for lunch!! It was as good as it sounded. I used low fat rasberry vinegarette as the marinade,low fat mayo, and sour cream. I als...
