I received great reviews on this salad at my weekly Sunday Open House. My Aunt used to make it a long time ago,we haven't had it in ages.
She never measured the ingredients,I forgot to measure when I made it. I know I'll make it again soon and I will measure,in the meantime, rice is the largest amount,the remaining ingredients to taste. Guessing,I would say 1 tablespoon of mayo to 1/2 teaspoon Dijon.The bacon is optional because I'm not a fan of bacon but my Aunt always added to her salad.

How To Make The Perfect Hard Boiled Egg Recipe

How to Make the Perfect Hard Boiled Egg

Kitchen Crew @JustaPinch

They pack protein into a salad, are a fantastic on-the-go breakfast and a necessity for making deviled eggs. Hard boiled eggs are fantastic but are a bit intimidating to cooks....
