"A summer family favorite. Great with all types of meats. The recipe was given to me years ago by a friend, but I don't have a clue as to the origin."

I make a Cracker Salad, but mine is slightly different. I use one sleeve of saltines, 2 roma tomatoes chopped removing the seeds, 3 green onions chopped and 2 hard boiled eggs diced. Right before I serve it, I mix all those ingredients with a cup and a half of mayonnaise. This is one of my husband's favorite side dishes, especially with grilled chicken or grilled pork tenderloin. Does not keep- too soggy!

Everybody loves this! Scale down the ingredients if you won't be able to eat it all at one serving. I assemble all the ingredients separately, and mix them together at the last minute before serving.

My husband and I liked this salad. I agree with one of the other reviews...the crackers do get a little soggy after a while; next time I make it I will add the crackers just before serving.

My sister-in-law introduced this delicacy to me ;). It was SO good...and I'm NOT a tomato person! I left the green peppers out and used green onions instead of white onions. I'm trying to find a way to work this into our Thanksgiving menu! ;)

This was so good! My husband even went for seconds. Next time we are going to try to add some tuna to it and make a meal out of it. Thanks for such a unique, delicious recipe....
