    My husband and I tried out this recipe to go with chicken on the grill and it was delicious!! We made it without the ham...and only used 1/4 cup of the dressing. Yum!!!!!

    I'm always looking for recipes that will work for meat eating family as well as my vegetarian daughter. This one works great and is a family favorite,especially in the summer. I also add broccoli or any vegetable I may need to use up.
