Reviews for Layered Salad for a Crowd
"What is the seasoning blend?"
"10 stars. I made it for a community picnic so I had to up the amounts by quite a lot. Big hit all around and no leftovers. Delish!"
"Everyone just loved this salad to where they ask me to make at family and work functions keeper"
"This was a delicious salad. I added corn and had a dish of cherry tomatoes on the side and sprinkled the top with tortilla chips.I used lowfat sour cream instead of the mayo and added a tsp. of minced garlic."
"I needed a big salad for a large group of ethnically diverse people. I was also concerned about fat content. I used reduced fat mayonnaise, 2% cheese and served the bacon on the side. This was a big hit and one of the first dishes to disappear. Salads are usually not this popular at a pot luck. This is definitely a crowd pleaser!"
