Scrumptious Seven Layer Salad
Seven Layer Salad
A Delicious Get Together Salad
This salad is layer after layer of crunchy vegetable goodness with a mayonnaise based dressing and topped with yummy bacon. Some people substitute chopped boiled eggs or celery for the tomato layer. You could actually add both and make a yummy nine layer salad. Either way this is a great way to get in ample servings of vegetables in a great side item. It is amazing with pork loin or grilled chicken. This salad is a good addition to any family get together or potluck dinner.
