    The secret is the sweet pickle relish...yummmmmm.
    Excellent salad! I cut the ingredients in half to make two servings and there was plenty of dressing with even a little left over. Everything worked so well together.
    Loved It!!
    It was perfect as is. Quite the hit. Easy and delicious!
    Made it without any changes what a great dish.
    I had only had this in San Francisco and other Bay Area restaurants, and decided to try it out here in North Carolina. Wow, it took me back to Pier 39! I used dill relish in my dressing, and didn't use any asparagus in the salad, but added some Artichoke Hearts I had on hand. The hard boild eggs in the dressing was genius. Love the black olives in it, and added some capers as well. I can't wait to have it again for lunch today!
    You're a genius Becky! I grew up with this (in the 60's!) and your recipe is better than what I remember! Fight On!
    This salad is so good, but especially the dressing with the added hard-boiled eggs - a real taste pleaser.
    Quick and tasty; added cajun seaoning
    I guess the idea of this recipe was to take a very simple dish, and give it a bit of a punch. I tried the olives and eggs- the flavors tasted good together- but honestly, it wasn't visually appealing, and it kind of made my stomach turn- I kept thinking that some black bugs were swimming in my thousand island dressing!
    Tried this recipe for a quick, light lunch and was very happy with how easy it was to prepare... Quick and tasty!
    easy to put together ,excellent taste
    This by far is the best Louie I have ever eaten. Swan Oyster Depot is my premier pick for sea food in San Francisco. The recipe is a definate must try.
