Company's Coming Multi Layered Salad

Sandy Williams


For special events or for show, a deep punch bowl or large glass bowl really shows off this salad. It is a bit harder to layer in a bowl that is rounded but it looks great if you are having it on your table. I personally do not like head lettuce, so I use romaine, spring mix and sometimes add spinach to it.
