    Note: After I prepared this salad, I chilled it in the refrigerator for 3 hours, but the salad seemed dry, so I prepared a bit more of the dressing, and added it immediately. What a difference that made. The salad was a lot more creamy, and stayed creamier for several days in the fridge.

    Also, when adding a bit more of the dressing, I used, 1/2 cup Hellmann's Mayonnaise 1/2 tablespoon of the mustard, 1/4 teaspoon Morton's Season-All Salt, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, 1/2 tsp onion powder, and 1/2 tsp Lawry's Lemon Pepper Seasoning.
