Seven Layer Salad Recipe
From that year on, it has become a family tradition. We’ve eaten it for Easter dinner every year. It’s fresh, delicious, and easy because you make it the day before~ such a bonus when you’re preparing a big holiday dinner. Plus, it reminds me of those wonderful years in North Carolina and our dear friends. Thanks, Connie!
