Mountaintop Salad

Kim Biegacki


I love to make my salads as beautiful as I can because it encourages me to "eat the good stuff".

While I was eating my salad tonight my husband said it looked like a mountaintop, so that's what I decided to name it. LOL

Hope you enjoy.

How to Make Mountaintop Salad


  • 1Slice the iceberg lettuce horizontal into the thickness you desire. Lay down on a large plate and cover with dressing of your choice. You could use a ranch or blue cheese and then an Italian on top to have two different flavors inside the salad.
  • 2Cut up all your ingredients and begin covering your lettuce slice with them, one by one. When all finished add your crushed croutons last. Now drizzle more dressing of choice. I used Italian and then drizzled in a circle the balsamic glaze.
  • 3Get a fork and knife and you are ready to eat a most beautiful Mountaintop Matchstick Salad.
