Versatile Seven Layered Salad





















One good things about office pot luck parties is that you make one thing and you get to try and exchange so many recipes.

Again this recipe is from one of my dear friend and co-worker Debbie P.

She made this salad with Bacon and Boiled eggs, but she knows that I am a vegetarian and don't like boiled eggs, so she made a separate one for me without Bacon and eggs.

It looked so pretty in the glass bowl. I am not a big fan of Mayo, but I couldn't believe how good it tasted. Debbie gave me the recipe and I would love to share this with you all.


This recipe yields 8 servings.


Ingredients:


* 1/2 head of lettuce

* 1 cups of spinach

* 6 mushrooms

* 12-15 grape tomatoes

* 1 seedless cucumber peeled and cubed

* 3 green onions chopped with green part intact

* 1 1/2 cups Frozen Peas, microwave for 3 min on mw safe steamer

* 1 15 oz can of chick peas

* 1/2 Red Onion, chopped or sliced

* 1 red Bell Pepper sliced or chopped

* 1/2 cup walnuts

* 1 cup Real Mayonnaise

* 1 tsp Seasoned Salt

* 1/2 tsp ground black pepper (or to taste)

* 1 cup Cheddar Cheese, grated

* 4-6 strawberries for garnish



Method:


* Arrange salad greens in a see-through salad bowl, layer with spinach, peas, chickpeas, onions, cucumbers, tomatoes and then the red pepper. (or any which way you like)

* Mix together Mayo, seasoning salt and pepper to taste.

* Top green onion layer with the dressing.

* Sprinkle grated cheese and walnuts.

* Repeat the layers.

* Garnish the top with strawberries and remaining tomatoes.

* Refrigerate the salad and toss it just before serving to mix all the dressing with salad.

* You can alternate the layers of veggies and Mayo or you can top it with mayo, I did the alternate layers so the dressing is evenly incorporated.

* You can add or change any of the ingredients.

* I also drizzled it with little raspberry vinaigrette to give additional flavor. You can make any variation with this salad, you can not go wrong.


Enjoy :)
