This is a good and easy salad. You can make it yours by adding your favorite salad ingredients such as shrinp, chicken, tuna, ham, and any vegetable or taking away any of the basic ingredients. I usually make mine with Zesty light Italian dressing and sometimes add a little Ranch to my plate. Also when I add shrimp/crabmeat I use the Catalina dressing. You can add as much/little of the ingredients as you like.
