Seven Layer Salad


This salad is incredibly simple! All you need are 7 ingredients : red onion, lettuce, peas, mayonnaise, ham, eggs and cheddar cheese.

It’s one of the best recipes that my sisters-in-law have showed me! Great for a picnic and wonderful for a big party! A great idea for Memorial day!

It’s also an incredible salad, because it’s a great way to finish the leftovers. Instead ham, you can choose chicken or bacon. If you have spinach instead lettuce, it’s perfect too!

I usually make this salad in a large glass salad bowl. So you can see the colorful combination of this Seven Layer Salad.

Thanks Françoise and Christina for this fantastic salad 🙂
