My mother always used to dice a few stuffed green olives and mix them with the other ingredients. Mother has been gone for years, and my wife hates olives, so it's only a memory now, but it sure was good!

I don't like raw celery so I leave it out of my potato/macaroni/egg and other salads. To make up for that, I usually add lots of other bits of green including olives and green pepper.

My mom would also fry an egg or two in that bacon grease, chop them up, and add them to the mix.
