This went over really big with my family and co-workers. The seasonings in the mayonaise was a great touch that really made the extra difference. I also added cheddar cheese on the top. It was outstanding!!

I found it to have too much mayo. I had to later mix it all together and added more lettuce. If I make again I will use 1/2 the mayo

This recipe is very similar to mine. I put a layer of chopped celery over the lettuce layer and I use chopped green onion instead of a regular onion. After the mayonnaise layer I put a big layer of grated Parmesion cheese, then I crumble 6 eggs over that and slice 2 tomatoes over the eggs and sprinkle real bacon bits over. I do not use season salt just 2 cups mayonnaise and 1/8 tsp. garlic powder. Very good.

I loved the ingredients in this salad and it is rather easy to prepare, especially since you can prepare it the day beforehand. I brought it to a potluck and was asked several times for the recipe!!

I love this salad! It's creamy and very tasty. The dressing just soaks right into all the vegetables. Try it.....i'm sure you'll love it too.

This is a "fantastic" salad for any buffet or potluck. I make it during the summer months and serve it with cold chicken for a easy summertime dinner...leftovers are even better the next day! So many of my friends have requested this recipe from me.

This salad was fantastic!!! I used a bag of romaine lettuce and added chopped bell pepper. I also used green onion for the onion. I've served it twice and have had at least a half dozen requests for the recipe. I love that it can mostly be made the night before. This one is going in my permanent recipe file!
