"It's the dressing that makes this salad so delicious. This can be made the night before, and you can also use grated Cheddar cheese instead of Parmesan." — Nancy

Big hit at our Christmas progressive dinner with the neighbors!
This was good but would have rated it higher with less curry. A little strong for our tastes.
My mom makes a salad like this for Thanksgiving and I love it! I like this version because the mayo dressing is "jazzed up" with the garlic and curry powder. I threw the parm cheese right into the dressing and put cheddar all over the top of this salad. I omitted the mushrooms, used an orange pepper, and cooked about 7 pieces of bacon and crumbled them. I also used light mayo. This one is a keeper!
As stated many times over previously . . . this is a FABULOUS recipe. My family all
loved it. I cut it in half and it was just enough for 8 people as a side dish. I didn't
change a thing but my curry powder wasn't the freshest so would probably add a
bit more next time. It is great to have these recipes for food items that can be
made ahead of time . . . they are such time and nerve savers when entertaining.
This salad is SO good, but it's the dressing that makes it EXCEPTIONAL! I skipped the mushrooms and celery, and used 1/2 parmesan cheese and 1/2 cheddar cheese on top to give it some more color, and then used imitation bacon bits for convenience. I used red onion instead of green for more color, and chopped the water chestnuts first before adding. I will make this salad again and again! I especially love that it keeps well in the fridge if we have leftovers.
This salad was good. Different from the other layered salads. The dressing makes this one stand out! I did omit the mushrooms, used red onions instead of the green onions. I mixed the parmesan cheese right in with the mayo and added shredded cheese to the top. Yum!!
This was ok, but had too much lettuce. I think twice the eggs and bacon may have made it better. I make a similiar salad, but build it in a 9x13 glass dish; that way the dressing is distributed over more of the salad ingredients.
Wow the dressing really does make this salad stand out from the rest of the layered salads. Delicious!! I added extra hard boiled eggs, used 6 slices of cooked crumbled bacon, and red onion instead of green onion. The salad was a hit. But FYI don't mix the dressing til the last minute as salad doesn't hold up well once dressing is mixed in. The salad is great will make again.
