The original recipe calls for mayo. You all know I despise mayo, so I replaced it with ranch dressing. It gave it amazing flavor. You could also add some chopped grilled chicken to this as well to serve as a main course.
I think after you make this you will love it as much as everyone else. 😉 I’m sure it will make many appearances at your summer cookouts and barbecues too!
