As for the reason this post is titled "Mayonnaise Salad". I will remember Crystal for a lot of things, like being one of the kindest people I've ever met, but something I will definitely never forget is the dinner she made us years ago that included a "salad" (using the term loosely). She made it in a cake pan and layered iceberg lettuce, peas, a generous layer of mayonnaise and topped it all off with a decorative swirl of Chees Whiz. When we asked his grandpa what it was he replied "your grandma's specialty, shut up and eat it". According to the rest of the family that was the one and only time they had the salad which has affectionately come to be known as "mayonnaise salad".
