"Delicious and fresh tasting....I actually dumped the bacon bits and cranberries in while chopping the veggies not realizing they were to be added at serving time and they taste great! So far I haven't..." See more used the whole bottle of dressing just in case it get's to be too soupy. It would be very good with any oil/vinegar based dressing and easy to use fat free to save calories...if one feels they must. I will like to eat this for several meals in the warm weather. I think I'll also make it for the next pot-luck. I think cubed jarlsberg cheese would be really tasty in this salad if you wanted to add a little protein."
