A little salty with the cans of soup and added salt was a little too much. I did not add garlic salt too, omg that's too much. Thanks to the reviews, I skipped that step.

I omitted the sour cream and butter.

It might be too salty to me and not others, I don't use canned foods, so it might just be personal preference,...

It was surprisingly good. I used hummus and it was nice. I would omit the extra olive oil from the cucumber step. I omitted the red flakes. I will make this dish again, but I will try to make it without a dripping mess (due to the extra liquid on each step).

Very refreshing dish. "

I grilled red onions and chopped and grilled the yellow and green squash. I used red wine vinegar and no ground mustard. If the sauce is to strong (due to the vinegar) add more olive oil. I loved this dish, it's a must have for the warmer months. I think it's better served warm than cold."

The hummus is good. It needs to be chilled first, I didn't add lemon juice since tahinni sauce had it already. I used 1 can of garbanzo beans with a little water to make creamier. And alost 1 clove of garlic. We'll see how it turn out chilled. It tasted like it needed a little salt and more olive oil once chilled."

I would have cooked it for 35-40 mins vs 45 mins. I only put 2 cups of sugar which was more than enough. Mine came out really soft.
I only used 3/4 cup of oil.

I mixed everthing by hand in a big bowl no mixer is needed."

I put the meat in the crockpot for 6 hours, it didn't have much flavor in the beginning. I added all the seasons again on the vegtables and the meat. After you shread the meat you need to fry it in the pan with oil to get brown. That's the real dish a little fried. Not sure if I'll make it again. I will get it from the restaurant."

No flavor at all! I added some raw honey to the bottom of a few muffins and those were the best plain. I also drizzled a little on top too. The other ones are fine with butter.
I added some vanilla and shredded some carrots too in the next batch.

I wanted the traditional bran muffins, these are something else."
