I found it to have too much mayo. I had to later mix it all together and added more lettuce. If I make again I will use 1/2 the mayo Read More

This recipe is very similar to mine. I put a layer of chopped celery over the lettuce layer and I use chopped green onion instead of a regular onion. After the mayonnaise layer I put a big layer of grated Parmesion cheese, then I crumble 6 eggs over that and slice 2 tomatoes over the eggs and sprinkle real bacon bits over. I do not use season salt just 2 cups mayonnaise and 1/8 tsp. garlic powder. Very good. Read More

I loved the ingredients in this salad and it is rather easy to prepare especially since you can prepare it the day beforehand. I brought it to a potluck and was asked several times for the recipe!! Read More

This is a "fantastic" salad for any buffet or potluck. I make it during the summer months and serve it with cold chicken for a easy summertime dinner...leftovers are even better the next day! So many of my friends have requested this recipe from me. Read More

This salad was fantastic!!! I used a bag of romaine lettuce and added chopped bell pepper. I also used green onion for the onion. I've served it twice and have had at least a half dozen requests for the recipe. I love that it can mostly be made the night before. This one is going in my permanent recipe file! Read More

This is a wonderful salad for the holidays- it can be made ahead and it looks beautiful if you make it in a glass trifle dish. I add fresh cauliflower and broccoli florets in small pieces. Read More
