                        1 to 2 tablespoons Lowry's garlic salt
                        1 to 2 tablespoons fresh minced garlic
                        1/2 teaspoon ground white pepper
                        1 to 2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper

                        pickles, salami, and black olives. Refrigerate the mixture,
                        uncovered, overnight (or refrigerate for at least 2 hours).
                        Mix the Lowry's garlic salt, minced garlic,
                        white pepper, black pepper, cayenne pepper, dry mustard, horse
                        radish and celery salt together. Add to salad. Fold in the pimentos.
                        Fold in 1 cup of mayonnaise to start. Add up to a 1/2 cup more of
                        mayonnaise if needed. Refrigerate again for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
