This was a delicious change for my work lunch. Very filling with loads of different flavors and textures. I substituted a couple of scallions for the red onion and served on rustic Italian rolls.
Excellent! I've made it twice, once with sourdough, once with lettuce "wraps".... any kind of onion works, I'm sure, but we preferred the scallions. Thanks!
Thanks you so much for ths great way to hold the mayonnaise!
