  • “I made this to have a healthy snack or add veggies to round out a quick meal. It was soo good I just tripled the recipe!As a newly diagnosed diabetic, I came upon this recipe and glad I did, makes things a little easier right now. The addition of the red pepper is great for my metabolism asI am also on a mission to lose weight, which that will help! I put whatever fresh veggies I had that needed to b used. So added some mushrooms, chopped asparagus, fresh green beans also, yummy pick me up! Thank you!”

  • “Woweee! We really enjoyed this. I made this for Easter, together with Crock Pot Turkey Breast (Recipe # 25518) and some mashed potatoes, with hot cross buns. Very tasty, and we liked the little kick from the pepper in the dressing. I added green beans and asparagus because they represent spring to me. Used red and yellow sweet peppers. Now I made these again, and we ate them without any time marinating. Delicious this time, too. Thanks, Derf!”
