24 Hour Lettuce Salad

READY IN: 24hrs 15mins
Recipe by Catnip46

If you're looking for a good tasting, not all that fancy but fancy enough to serve company or take to a potluck this is the recipe. This recipe must be refrigerated overnight and do not use any other brand of mayonnaise except Hellman's. Skipping these two steps does make a difference. Make sure ingredients are sealed in good with the mayonnaise.

I have made the salad for years. I add 3 bean salad, marinated artichokes, mushrooms, tiny bits of whatever cheese I have, tiny shrimp and anything else I that is great in a salad. To make it an entre salad I add diced chicken, ham or beef. It is wonderful !
