Seven Layer Salad

This is a tradition potluck salad dish – but since it is always enjoyed , I added it to the Father’s Day Menu.


The basic rule is to pick ingredients that you know your guy and your guests will enjoy.

Here are suggestions for seven of them, but please use your imagination and experience as well!

Seven Layer Salad:

  1. Romaine lettuce – torn into bite size pieces
  2. Spring greens – small size leaves
  3. Hard-boiled eggs – sliced
  4. Cherry tomatoes
  5. Fresh Sweet peas
  6. Bacon pieces
  7. Shredded Cheddar cheese

Prepare ingredients ahead of time – and package in ziplock bags until ready to assemble the salad. Romaine and spring green, as well as bacon pieces and hard-boiled eggs should not be prepared too far ahead – my suggestion would be a day ahead at the best.
