During the Summer months, I could make a meal from salad alone. The layers of goodness in this Seven Layer Salad go together deliciously.

The Classic Seven Layer Salad has well…seven layers! Imagine that…lettuce, hard boiled eggs, crumbled bacon (we cook ours in the oven), chopped tomatoes, green onions, grated American cheese, and peas. The dressing is a simple combination of mayonnaise, sour cream and a tablespoon of sugar to taste.

The thing I like most about this salad – besides the flavor of course, is that you can feed a crowd. It’s great for potlucks, picnics, cookouts, and our upcoming holiday celebrations like Memorial Day and 4th of July.

How many reunions have you been to that this Classic Seven Layer Salad Recipe shows up? For me – more than I can count. It’s a classic recipe that everyone loves. And honestly, it couldn’t be more easy to make. You can even cut up all the layers the day before and simply put together the salad several hours before serving.

I used a large trifle bowl to layer the salad, but you can use any type of bowl or jar even. I love adding salad to mason jars, putting the lid on and packing them in a cooler for a picnic.
