Thanks Linda for making my Easter dinner table a little more prettier. I chose to do this layered salad in a trifle bowl to show off all the colorful layers of salad. I chose celery, tomatoes, cucumber, boiled eggs, parmesan cheese and two kinds of shredded cheese. The skys the limit for what all you could put into this wonderful salad. I chose all things I knew my extended family would enjoy. I should also mention I used one bag of already cut up Hearts of Romaine lettuce:-) Made for 123Hits.~
I love layered salads! This was so good, although I did make a few changes. I left out the tomato(I didn't have enough), didn't cook the frozen peas, and used scallions with the red onion. I also left out the Parmesan. I took this to a church potluck and everyone loved it. There was none left to take home. Thanks! Made for the New Cookbooks tag game.
