    I make this exactly as written and it is delicious. Even my little kids and vegetable averse husband love it. I often take it to potlucks and serve it at family events where I am hosting. Rarely go home with any leftovers.

    All the layers in this salad make it pretty to serve. I really like the taste of the dressing on the top. I also like that all the ingredients can be tasted and enjoyed but none stands out more than the others. When I made it I left out the parsley layer.

    I use lettuce, fresh spinach, swiss cheese, peas, hard boiled eggs, bacon, and onion. Alternating layers. Very pretty presentation.
