I have made a version of this for years. I thought this one might be a different and delicious change. Not so... This was way too peppery, too much cheese and the red wine vinegar(and the lemon juice) made it almost bitter.

This recipe is so good, my whole family loved it. My dad wanted me to make more, so he could take it to work the next day. since he is on a diet, i used non-fat plain yogurt instead of mayo and he didnt even know the differnace. using the yogurt instead of the mayo cut out a lot of the fat, and not a lot of the taste. will continue to make this recipe with yogurt.

Had to review this again since I've made it at least 6 to 8 times this summer. It was fabulous the 1st time I made it and has become a favorite. I don't measure ingredients any longer and I vary them with what I have on hand. Plumped raisins and sunflower seeds make it extra good, but it's great without.It's a wonderful make-ahead dish and left-overs keep nicely. I always double the dressing using Splenda, red wine or cider vinegar, and light mayo.THE BEST! deserves 6 stars!
