Seven-Layer Salad

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/seven_layer_salad.html

From EatingWell:  May/June 2009

This makeover of a Midwestern classic tops layers of lettuce, peas, bell pepper and tomatoes with a creamy, tangy dressing. The salad stays fresh underneath until it's served and gets even better when held overnight.

10 servings, about 1 cup each | Active Time: 30 minutes | Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Place lettuce in a large bowl. Layer peas, bell pepper, tomatoes, celery and scallions on top.
  2. Whisk yogurt, mayonnaise, vinegar, sugar to taste, garlic powder, salt and pepper in a medium bowl until smooth. Spread the dressing evenly over the top of the salad (an offset spatula is handy for this, if you have one). Sprinkle with cheese, basil and bacon. Serve room temperature or chilled.
