I use green onions, and chopped hard boiled eggs. Then I slice a cucumber in half and rim the bowl. Adds a pretty fresh look and taste

I used green onion, instead of regular onion because I wanted a milder onion flavor and I omitted the cranberries. Delicious!

I'm not a big fan of salads but I loved this!! I served it for my church group carry in and I left out the bacon since there were some vegetatarians in the group. Even without bacon this tastes great and it's so easy to put together!

A wonderful tasting salad. Left out the peppers. But used everything else. Really like the review with the hard cooked eggs added (sounds delicious). Thanks a million to the person who submitted this one! Was a real hit at our dinner party.

You can't go wrong with bacon and cheese! I like to add a pressed clove of garlic, a tsp each of seasoned salt, ground black pepper and dried dill weed, and a dash of red wine vinegar to the dressing for some zip. Great recipe.

I subbed romaine for the iceberg lettuce. Family likes it better. I've been making this salad for years. I usually put broccoli or cauliflower in it, but I didn't this time. I thought the cranberries was a nice touch.

This is the best layered salad (IMHO). Do add the cranberries, they make it special. This is good as a family supper, just add some cooked diced chicken and crusty bread on the side.
