Personal Notes:
This recipe comes from a time when you could not buy lettuce in a bag. I buy the lettuce mixture that has carrots and purple cabbage. I cut it up to make more bite size pieces before I start layering. Please don't use Baco's unless you just love them! I also lighten it up sometimes with a fat free or light mayonaise. I toss before serving because it just makes it easier to serve.
