Multi-Layered Salad

Macrayla Evans


Love this salad. It is always made during the hot summer months when I don't want to heat up the kitchen. To save time I buy pre-chopped veggies and pre-cooked bacon.

How to Make Multi-Layered Salad


  1. To make the dressing: Mix together the mayonnaise, sour cream, and yellow. Put in the refrigerator until you are ready to assemble the salad.
  2. Fry the bacon until crisp or use pre-cooked bacon strips. Blot the excess bacon grease off with paper towels and set aside to cool. Once cooled, crumble the bacon and set aside.
  3. Hand-slice into fine strips the iceberg lettuce, or use a food processor with 4mm slicing disc to slice
  4. In a food processor, or by hand, fine-chop each of the following and set aside:

    Half of one bunch celery
    1 large red bell pepper
    1 red onion
    1 cucumber
    1 tomato
  5. Layer the chopped and frozen ingredients in the order given:

    red bell pepper
    red onion
    frozen petite sweet corn ***will thaw as the salad sits
    frozen sweet peas ***will thaw as the salad sits
    dressing ***cover the peas entirely
    Parmesan cheese
    crumbled bacon
  6. No need to toss the salad before serving; just dig in and get salad and dressing all in one scoop.
