An authentic recipe that takes 2 days. Have yours 2-way (served on a big plate of spaghetti); 3-way (add shredded Cheddar cheese); 4-way (add chopped raw onion on top of the cheese); or the big 5-way serving, everything plus a topping of kidney beans.
This makes a whopping salad, but once you start eating it, you'll wish you 'd made more. Lots of crunchy and delicious ingredients like water chestnuts, peas and crumbled bacon. The creamy mayonnaise dressing, with a bit of garlic and sugar spooned in, is spread over the top of the salad before everything is chilled.
