I recently hosted a salad bar buffet. Everyone loved this salad! I sub'd radishes for the green pepper and used 1/3 of an envelope of ranch dressing in the mayo. After 12 hours in the fridge this salad became extremely crunchy and flavorful. Perhaps the moisture from the frozen peas drips down through the rest of the layers to make it so.This salad also eliminated the need for 14 different bottles of dressing on the table.You get a lovely green salad taste with a very light and flavorful dressing that melds all the veggie flavors together.Kraft Foods does it again!

Your recipe is not as good as "Our" South African version. You need hard boiled egss, a variety of peppers, feta cheese and if possible, sprouts as well. The idea is to have seven layers and to scrunch through them. DO NOT TOSS. Do not thaw peas. Shred the lettuce or salad greens and then they will not go brown. Salad lasts for days.

Hubby and I were nervous about a salad that was just topped with Mayo. But I made it early in the day for a dinner party and put it in the refrigerator. I forgot to buy celery, so that was left out, and we love egg in salad, so we added that. Used red peppers instead of green, cuz that's what I had. We were pleasantly surprised at dinner to discover this is an AWESOME salad. It is SO good. Doesn't even taste like you're eating salad, it's so good. Oh yeah...also used that new ready to serve bacon sliced up, and i did NOT thaw the peas. Yum, Yum, Yum. Sounds like a lot of changes I guess...but that just means this is a flexible recipe, and who doesn't like that?

This is my favorite recipe but I have always added cucumbers, chopped water chestnuts, and have used red onion instead of green onions. I layer the salad vegetables, add 3T of sugar to the 1 cup of mayonnaise and add the mayonnaise mixture. I then add the bacon, cheese and sliced hard boiled egg. LOVE this salad! The mayo mixture "seeps down to coat it all!

Great Salad, teens love it. I did change it a bit.I sprinkled the 1st layer with sugar, added a layer of sliced hard boil eggs ( 6 eggs adds a little protein!), standing some of the slices on their edge next to bowl.It looks nice, skipped the celery and green peppers, but added 1 1/2 cups of Jarlsburg cheese over the thawed and drained peas and bacon then sealed with the salad dressing. I always use Miricle Whip. I decorated the top with cheese and shallots

Excellent recipe! I used this as one of my side dishes for was a HIT. The flavors blend in nicely with each other, and it looks beautiful in a 'pedestal' glass dish. I actually made the mistake of adding minced onion to the mayonnaise instead of using the green onions, but it was still very delicious all the same. I will certainly use this recipe again!!!
