A bit different from your usual layered salads.

Top Review by Donna Matthews

This was a really good salad. It took me a LOT longer than 20 minutes to prepare the ingredients, but the ability to make it ahead is wonderful. Not having any serving instructions, I tossed all the ingredients together just before setting it out at a potluck. It was so creamy that I think I might try only 1 cup of mayo next time. I also think that with an average head of iceberg, there would be enough to serve 24 people. It was perfect for a large neighborhood potluck. A great blend of flavors! Especially liked what the bacon added.
