A make-ahead salad for a crowd, with crispy crunch appeal. There are many variations but this is the way Aunt Birdie prepared it, and it never fails to please at pot lucks and reunions. This is glamorous when layered in a round glass serving bowl, but for a crowd I usually assemble it flat in a glass 9x13" or 10x10" baking dish. It’s easier to “get to the bottom of things” that way when taking servings. Many of the layered salad recipes have you toss before serving to mix in the dressing. But this one doesn’t, and there’s an advantage, in that leftover salad served in a flat dish stores better with the dressing atop than mixed in. And Aunt Birdie would approve of that!
