Tip: For something different, try barware when serving desserts .
Seven Layer Salad
1 head iceberg lettuce~chopped
1 head cauliflower~chopped
1 bag frozen peas
6-8 slices bacon~microwave, drain, crumble
6-8 scallions, sliced thin
1 16 ounce jar light mayo, sweetened to taste (artificial sweetener may be used)
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
In a large bowl, layer lettuce, cauliflower, scallions, and peas. Mix sweetener with mayo, stir well and spread over peas. Top dressing with grated cheese, then bacon. Garnish with a few sliced scallions. Do not mix. Cover and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight. Mix salad, just before serving.
When I make this, for family gatherings, I serve the onion on the side, at the request of a couple of our children.
This salad looks gorgeous in a trifle bowl. I’ve made it this way a few times. However, I have to transfer to a larger bowl, for mixing, just before serving.
This is a family favorite.
Lime slice and cherry for garnish
Pour small amount of sparkling water into 10 ounce glass , add 2 heaping teaspoons confectioners sugar, dissolve; add juice of 1.5-2 limes, stir thoroughly. Add ice, fill with sparkling water, stir, garnish, enjoy!
I’ve added Grenadine to Cokes, for cherry Cokes; this might work for cherry limeades, also.
6/4/09…Just had a call from one of our daughters. She and our son in law will arrive, at the lake, late this evening. They put in a Friday dinner request; Seven Layer Salad! I’m on my way out for ingredients.
