hard-cooked eggs, diced

I did some research... After cutting the dressing in half- which is sufficent- and changing the mayo to fat-free mayo and the sugar to splenda and 1 oz. of cheese- it changed the calorie intake to about 80 calories instead of 400+. And it tastes just as good. My 2 cents. Thanks for this great recipe!
I was excited to make this last night as it sounded like something we would love, but I was sort of disappointed. I thought it was way too dressing-heavy, and that the dressing was too sweet. If I made it again, I would up the bacon, add less sugar to the dressing, and serve the dressing on the side.
Took this to our golf fundraiser and it was gobbled up! Like others, I added a little red pepper and sunflower seeds and green onions. Eyeballed the veggies (there was a lot!), but kept the dressing the same. It was plenty. I only got a taste of it, but really really liked what I had. Plus, it was a very pretty presentation in a glass salad dish. Kind of like a 7 Layer Salad. Oh, and I also put the dressing on over the cheese, then added the bacon and seeds afterwards to keep them crisper.
We always love this salad and I've made it many times. Each time I get rave reviews. I don't use the egg but I always add chopped red onion. I've also made it with raisins and sunflower seeds added. Every variation is delicious, just play around with the ingredients you like. :)
Awesome! I used a med to lg size cauliflower, equal amount of broccoli, used 15 eggs,
2 c. of cheese, 12 oz bacon, 3/4 c. white sugar, 3 T. white wine vinegar and almost 2 c.
of mayo. Drizzling the dressing didn't work for me, it just sat on the top, therefore, I stirred
it all together. It fit perfectly into a 4.5 qt portable. Next time, I will reserve some of the cheese
and bacon to sprinkle on the top after the dressing has been stirred in. I can see this
recipe becoming one of my families favorites.
I made this recipe for Easter and it was a big hit. I thought both the taste and texture were great. I followed the directions exactly, but only poured about 3/4 of the dressing on top of the salad. I put the remaining dressing in a bowl next to the salad so people could add more if they wanted.
Fantastic salad. With each bite a different part of the salad comes through. Great combination of textures and flavours. This was also very easy to make and only took about 20 minutes (or maybe less). I also added the sunflower seeds and would highly recomend doing so. I will definitely make this again.
great version of this salad. no wonder it has a 5-star rating. I added finely chopped green peppers and green olives to counter sweet dressing. next time I think I will reduce mayo/sugar by 1/2.
