Expert Tips

This recipe transforms a favorite appetizer into a fun dinner salad; serve the salad with lemon wedges on the side.

To reduce the fat by about 9 grams per serving, use light mayonnaise instead of regular mayonnaise.

Serve this salad with Bloody Marys. For convenience, use a mix, prepared with or without alcohol. Pour it over ice and garnish each drink with a 4-inch piece of celery.
