I'm not much of a cook, but the whole family liked this recipe. Was really easy and really tasty! Switched regular salt with garlic salt.

Love this with a little garlic salt, honey and grapes. Best flavor is with roasted chicken. YUM YUM

Absolutely love this recipe! Started to enjoy cooking again after my husband and I became empty nesters! He loves this lighter meal served with some warm crescent rolls. He requests it be on our regular menu and asked that I bring it to our company party this year. Love to WOW him with great dishes from Mrs. Deen!

I can't eat egg so we substitute sour cream for the mayo. Love this recipe, easy to make and tastes great.
