Seven-Layer Salad

May/June 2009

Your rating: None Average: 4 (219 votes)

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.

Never Fail!

I have made this several times and it never fails to please! Don't have all the vegetables in the recipe, never fear, just use what you have on hand! The dressing is heavenly!

Everything!

Great flavor

This was so easy and when I first made it the salad was just gorgeous. I used fresh organic sweet peppers from my CSA/farm share and added some broccoli. I subbed reduced fat Veganaise for the mayo because I like the taste and honey for the sugar and I'm wondering if that is what caused it to be so watery? I also subbed Canadian bacon for the regular as that's all I had. Next time I will wait to add the dressing and I will add more broccoli because it was delish! When I brought it to work the next day the lettuce had deflated and there was lots of water in the bottom. I just transferred bowls and was good to go!

Super Easy

A Stay-Crisp Salad to make ahead to rave reviews!

My only changes were that I added some chopped cauliflower and I used some olive-oil based low fat mayonnaise. Also I left a center circle without cheese and made a pretty flower out of quartered tomatoes and green onion. It kept well without wilting.

Crunchy, colorful and healthy with lots of flavors

I made this salad for my nutrition class and they loved it. Many are vegetarians so I made two versions, one that omitted the bacon. The creaminess of the dressing is wonderful and much lighter than the traditional version made with all mayonnaise. This is really delicious.
