I have been making this salad for some years now. Its a huge hit at BBQS.

Really delicious. I used walnuts instead of pecans (generally unavailable in Greece) and loved the flavour and presentation. Rather than whipping up some cream, I just 'frosted' with a very thin layer of more mayo. Very well-received for our Sunday lunch. I can see making this for potlucks and special bbqs.
