Tips & Tricks

Tip:

For a lighter calorie version, substitute Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Light Dressing.
For special occasions, try adding 1 jar (14.75 oz.) marinated artichoke hearts in oil, drained and halved and 1/8 cup crumbled feta cheese.
For convenience, try using packaged grilled chicken meat or substitute diced rotisserie chicken.
Make-Ahead Tip: You can make this recipe 1–2 hours ahead and keep it refrigerated. Let it stand at room temperature for 10–15 minutes before serving. You may need an additional ½ cup dressing to moisten the salad.
