Molded salad was my Dad's favorite but over the years I have forgotten this salad's name. Whatever it's name, everyone who tries it loves it!

Good. The kids would not eat it. My husband and I liked it but it is too rich to eat a lot of and it makes LOT. I would make it again when there are more people to share it. Read More

Very good! It was so good I even ate it for breakfast. Instead of using a jello mold I put salad in an 8 x 8 pan cut it in squares and served on a lettuce leaf. My family really enjoyed it. Read More

This is a great recipe. My grandfather used to make this and I was so happy to find it here. If some people find it tastes too much like mayo maybe they are using salad dressing and not mayo which has a lighter taste. My whole family loves this salad. Thank you for this recipe. Read More

Besides my family this is one of my favorite things about Thanksgiving. My mom let me help make it when I was little. Here some 50 odd years later I still make it for Thanksgiving. Its not for everyone but that means more for me! Read More
