Stitching Post Salad

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by PanNan

A delicious and attractive layered salad. The celery and water chestnuts add a nice crunch, and the fresh Parmesan dressing with bacon/egg topping adds a wonderful flavor to the vegetables. It's important that each serving includes a portion of all the layers. Please note: the overnight chilling time is essential for flavor, and make this a great do-ahead dish. This recipe would be perfect for a ladies luncheon in the Southern U.S. region.

Excellent salad! I brought this to a BBQ and everyone raved about it. I used 'real' mayonnaise and followed Nan's instructions to a T. Easy to make and so convenient to do ahead of time and let it chill overnight. Thanks Nan, great salad!
