    Absolutely a great salad! You must give this one a try. Would be great for cookouts, pot lucks, etc. Can definitely see how any leftovers could wind up between two pieces of bread with some pickles too. I did not have a problem putting this together. Maybe 30 to 35 minutes tops. Family says this is a definite keeper. Easy, really tasty, and a great summer time meal all on it's on.
    this is definitely a crowd pleasing, different salad! Great for cookouts! However, Rachel is waaaaaaay off on the prep time. I've made this 3 times and the prep time is over an hour
    Since the first time I made this recipe my Grandchildren (teenagers) request this every holiday. Easy to make which is good because I'm handicapped. I still feel like I can contribute something. Thank you so much Rachael, you ROCK.
    Overall, this salad had a great taste. It was somewhat time consuming chopping all the ingredients, even with a food processor. I would definitely make it again. My husband and I ate it with several meals over the weekend (and I caught my husband eating it right out of the refrigerator numerous times). I would probably make half the recipe for the just the two of us again. I did not add ham to it, and would probably do the same again.
    When I watched Rachael make this I knew that it sounded like something I might like. When I made it for a party I didn't think that anyone would try it. I thought it was too chopped - But to my surprize many people loved it and asked me to make it again! It is like a big italian sandwhich without the bun. Although it would be great stuffed into a bulky Roll with pickles!! Thanks Rachael
    Can't you just talk like regular people do?
    This salad was easy and delicious. I took it to a potluck and everyone raved about it! The hardest part was all of the chopping and even that wasn't a big deal. Great summer salad.
    I used hot mixture of hot cauliflower, carrots and peppers. I love hot spicy foods. There is room for change but a great recipe!!! This is a wonderful salad that keeps for a few days even if your the only one who eats it. Way to go Rachel!!! Keep them simple with easy everyday ingredients!!!
    This was pretty good. I had never had the pickled veggies before so I was a skeptic. My daughter that doesn't really like many veggies even ate some. I only made a half recipe and I think I should have made the full recipe for the dressing. This is great for those of us on a low fat/carb diet. Great for a change for lunch.
    This salad was so good I found friends sneaking bites out of the fridge! I served it on a bed of lettuce and with sandwiches. So easy! I'm going to make it this week as a compliment to spaghetti!
    This was a fine recipe. It is definately a different type of salad. Everyone I made it for liked it but wasn't like this a an excellent salad. I would make it again and recommend it to someone who wants to try something new and different.
    I love summer salads with everything in it, so I can eat and run. Perfect Savannah
    This is awesome and very versatile. Especially for those of us who miss our sandwiches because we can't have wheat/gluten! My neighbors kids even liked it and they are picky, picky, picky.
     I cut it back to make about 1/2 the recipe, used a cubanelle pepper because they looked good in the market this week - and I don't like green peppers.
     I left out the sun dried tomatoes because I didn't have any, it was still really yummy.
     Way beyond my expectations... great to take to lunch for work because it keeps getting better!
