The result was a super tasty salad. I have used eggless mayonnaise in the salad, but if you prefer the mayonnaise with eggs, you can add so. You could make the salad with any vegetables and greens of your choice. You could also add mustard sauce if you like it.

Below is a pic without the stuffed olives added to the salad.


And now is the photo with olives added to the salad.
