Everyone always loves this because the flavors all blend together so well its hard not to eat more of this than anything else on your plate! :-)
Its best when eaten right the day its made though, or it gets soggy.

How to Make 7 Layer Salad

Step-by-Step

  • 1Place lettuce in large bowl, layer next 5 ingredients in order over top of each other as you go.
  • 2Mix sour cream and Mayo together. You can add more or less of each to your liking. Its the dressing.
    Spread over cheese.
  • 3Mix all ingredients together right before serving. Have to mix well until dressing is coating everything.
  • 4Keep leftovers in fridge, best eaten the same day or tends to get soggy. You can choose to not mix at all and layer in a cake pan. I have seen this.
    But notice its not the same...much better mixed in the bowl all at once!
