    Mammabunny's Note:

    This is my own recipe. I use it for most special occasions, with shrimp, and potlucks, with chicken. You can adapt it with just about any fresh veggie or cooked meat you would like! Cut the mayonnaise by half and make up the difference with plain yogurt, or sub plain yogurt entirely, for an eggless dish.

      IF substituting the fresh broccoli, eat or throw about the salad after 2 days. the broccoli tastes funny after that. (not that we often HAVE leftovers!) We haven't tried the bell pepper option yet, due to an allergy, but friends assure me it's very good.

      This was really tasty and easy to make Although I think I missed the key magic ingredient, as I'm overseas and couldn't get the soup mix. Instead I used a Knorr garlic salad dressing mix, plus some Tony Cachere's and Old Bay seasoning :). Used Broccoli, and cheddar cheese. I was really happy with the taste and flavor combinations. Not sure, but I think maybe I would have liked a little more mayo. I also used a hand held chopper to chop the pecans into smaller pieces. Thanks for the recipe!!

      Wish I could give this 10 stars, MB. It deserves at least that many. WOW!!! The flavors just pop. I left out the green peas (carb-watching) in order to use the pasta. Can't say enough about this terrifc salad. Definitely guest-worthy!! Thanks for being my PAC-06.Caroline
