Seven Layer Salad

Seven Layer Salad

I first tried this salad in 1991.  We were living in North Carolina, and visiting with our friends, The Chavis family, for Easter.  Connie made this salad for Easter dinner, and we loved it.  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!


Start by making the dressing.

Combine mayonnaise, sour cream, and Parmesan cheese, and mix until smooth.

Repeat layers as many times as you wish. Then cover tightly with plastic wrap, and refrigerate over night. HINT: I wait to add the bacon on the top layer until I'm ready to serve. That way it stays crispy.
