I remember this salad as served at the William Penn Hotel in Pittsburgh. This receipt is very close to the original and very delicious. I will prepare it again. Read More

I'm sorry folks but I've made this twice and while it is slightly similar it's miles away from the taste of what was served in the restaurants and sold in the stores. If anyone can shed any light on this I'd certainly appreciate it. Read More

Great! Took this salad to a family gathering and was asked to make sure it appeared at the next gathering. Added the dressing and meat to the lettuce just prior to serving to keep the salad fresh. Read More

Larry what a great recipe---thanks!!! It was emailed to me and I happened to have 2 cooked chicken breasts on hand and all the rest of the ingredients. Made it for our dinner and we love it. I'm going to try the dressing for egg salad macaroni salad and maybe even potato salad one day. An added benefit to this is it is LOW CARB!!! My husband and I are on a low carb diet so I used equal in place of the sugar and it really is very very low in carbs. Thanks again!!! Read More

My grandmother would take me to lunch at Hudson's on special occasions, and we would always get the Maurice Salad and a popover. Thank you for bringing back all of these wonderful memories for me. (Oh, and your rendition of the salad is delicious too!!) Read More

As a young woman, my friends and I thought it a great treat to go from the office to what was then called Hudsons on Woodward Avenue for the Maurice Salad. This is a great likeness. Brings back wonderful memories. And my Dutch husband and children love it. It is a global society! Like the other reviewer I use equal. Read More

Love this dressing. I use dill instead of parsley and I use 2 tablespoons of the sweet pickle juice instead of the onion juice. Read More

This is a great adaptation of Hudson's famous maurice salad! (Macy's still offers it on their menu at least in the Novi MI store.) My kids have never had the original but they LOVE this. And getting kids to love a salad isn't easy! Thank you for the recipe it brings back memories. Now if only I could find out how to make the Canadian Cheese soup.... Read More
