7-Layer Salad

Because we can't eat watermelon every night for dinner.
Mix 1 C. Mayo and 1 C. Sour Cream with 2 T. sugar
Choose 6 things from this list: (The bold are my favs for this recipe)
  • Bite-size pieces of lettuce
  • 1 C. diced celery
  • 1 C. chopped green onion
  • 1 C. chopped pepper (any color)
  • 1 C. shredded carrots
  • 1 10 oz. pkg. of frozen peas (thaw, not cooked)
  • 1 C. grated *cheese (maybe more if you love cheese)
  • Bite size pieces of ham or bacon (Some use 1/4 C. hormel bacon bits on top)
  • Cooked small macaroni or seashell pasta
  • Chopped tomatoes
Layer a 9X11 glass dish starting with the lettuce and your other favorites from the list above.
Spread the Mayo mix last. (I like to sprinkle with a little paprika seasoning on top of this)
It's a good idea to sprinkle your grated cheese on top too. *Save the cheese as one of your last layers. The amounts are just estimates you may need a little more here and there depending on your family's tastes. There are many variations to this recipe add whatever you like. Be sure to refrigerate leftovers.
This recipe can be made quickly with many interruptions, using one arm, dealing with a fussy baby, having hungry children around you, and phone calls.
Hardest Part: Cooking pasta and chopping your veggie choices.
