i sometimes use shredded carrots and broccoli. I also use green onions. This is my Aunt Mary's traditional holiday salad you can't go wrong with this one. Put it in a trifle bowl looks great. Read More

This was a nice salad and looked very pretty in the bowl. I think next time though I am going to add something to flavor the mayo a little bit. Read More

This is great! I used only 1/2 lb. bacon because I used turkey bacon (no extra fat to drain off so you have more bacon). As a time saver I used a bag of ready-to-eat chopped Romaine lettuce. I subtituted 1/2 cup sliced green onions instead of a regular one (for milder taste - just a personal preference) 1 chopped red bell pepper instead of peas (to give it color) no cheese (to lower the fat) and 3/4 cups reduced fat Ranch dressing insead of mayonnaise. Layered with lettuce cauliflower red bell pepper green onions turkey bacon and dressing. It's key to let this sit overnight so that the flavors meld. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

Aunt Mary's Salad has been a tradition in my family for over 50 years. I have the original printed recipe that my grandmother clipped from a magazine. Everyone who tries it loves it. A bit different from the one above. Read More
