A twelve-hour stint in the refrigerator makes all the difference in this crowd-pleasing layered salad. The mayonnaise dressing that 's spread over the top trickles down, and all the flavors come together.
The nice thing about this recipe is that the dish doesn't taste burnt even though you can get a nice blackened look. The sugar and the thyme caramelize and give it a wonderful flavor. All my friends love it.
