The Maurice

Many of you are familiar with the JL Hudson Company, at one time THE Detroit department store. Hudson's is long gone but at least two of the famous dishes served in their restaurants remain (at least here in Michigan)  Chicken Pot Pie and Maurice Salad.  Maurice Salad is our all time favorite summer dinner when the heat gets the best of us.  Here's my version which makes a HUGE bowl:

For the dressing:
1 cup mayo
3/4 cup Miracle Whip
1 medium onion grated on the large holes of a box grater
3 to 4 hard boiled eggs, chopped fine
1/2 chopped parsley
Mix everything together and refrigerate to let the flavors mingle.

For the salad:
1 large head iceberg lettuce, shredded
3/4 pound diced deli ham
3/4 pound diced deli turkey
1/2 pound diced Swiss cheese
Toss all together and serve with the dressing
