Reviews for 12-Hour Salad
"My Mom made this for years. Her recipe is almost identical, except hers has a layer of 5 chopped up hard boiled eggs. I think the eggs really add to it. Love this recipe!"
"I wasn't sure how I would feel about this recipe because I'm not crazy about mayonnaise or sour cream but boy was I surprised! This salad was a huge hit at Christmas dinner and I really enjoyed it myself. I couldn't believe that the veggies stayed crunchy despite sitting in the fridge overnight. I did use more bacon and cheese than what the recipe called for but thats just because it was a holiday and who doesn't like that stuff?! This will be a staple in our house from now on!"
"Amazing flavours, everyone loved this salad, it was the 1st to get eaten at our barbeque/party! It doesn't go soggy, stays fresh, and the flavour of the bacon goes right through overnight. I will make this again for sure."
"Deliscious! Made this for a barbeque and it went even before the potato salad, everyone loved it! Thelettuce keptfresh andthebaconflavourwentrightthrough. I couldeat this often!"
"My family just loved this salad. I will be making this again, I will make it one day,then stir everything and keep in refrig for more taste. I can hardly wait to hear the reviews."
"This recipe is so delicious. And, the funny thing is, even the wilted leftovers taste delicious. I also use a chopped hard boiled egg. Very yummy."
"The key is letting it sit overnight. I love the way the flavors meld together. The mayo - sour cream seals it off in the fridge. I got this recipe from a friend over 20 years ago. I still love it!"
"I don't use green peppers or sugar or sour cream. I use Best Foods mayo only and I use sweet onions. I put shredded cheddar cheese on the top. This dish travels well if you use frozen peas and make it right before you leave. Also, it's great for a BBQ as the peas keep it cold for a while.It would be great if all of the recipes would show the calories, carbs, etc. WITHOUT the mayo, etc. in case you were on a diet and wanted to use a diet dressing of your own choice."
"It's been awhile since I've had this salad, but it's just as good as I remember it!"
"Great salad. I took it to a party and the whole thing was eaten up very quickly. I have made it several times since."
