"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."
