Round out the fast feast with quick-to-fix Creamy Lettuce Salad. "This recipe is a family favorite I recall my mom serving often when I was growing up," relates Jacquie Troutman of Zephyrhills, Florida. "She particularly liked it because it was so easy to make and called for things she usually had on hand." A sweet dressing tops packaged salad greens that are dressed up with hard-cooked eggs, tomato and onion.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 22, 2012

"Easy to make and I had all the ingredients on hand. Even my non salad eating boys liked it so it is a keeper. Used Smart Beat instead of Mayo and it still tasted excellent. Will try the bacon next time as another reviewer suggested."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 27, 2011

"I remember this recipe too! I did add some crumbled bacon to make it taste more like a BLT. I also only used leaf lettuce because I remember as it would be tossed it would shrink. Completely normal for this recipe, a true classic!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 29, 2009

"Simple and tasty and I had all the ingredients on hand - it doesn't get much better than that!! I personally love the dressing, but only one other family member chose to use it - the others used bottled dressing. I have made this twice and will certainly make it again."
