Turn salad into clean bowl and chill, covered, overnight. When ready to serve, form salad into high mound on platter. Mix remaining 1/4 cup mayonnaise, 1/4 cup sour cream , 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1 tablespoon vinegar. Pour dressing over the top of mound so it cascades down the sides. Garnish the salad with any left over carrot rounds and chopped parsley. Makes 8-10 servings. NOTE: Ingredients for this salad may be varied. Try substituting fresh peaches in season for oranges, or crab meat for chicken.
