I’ve always wanted to learn how to make a 7-layer salad. I remember going to potlucks & church picnics as a kid and always being SO impressed with the pretty layered salads that my own microwave-loving family would never even consider tackling. I guess that’s why I never dared attempt it until now.

Well. Can I just say that I am kicking myself for not trying this sooner?

Not only was this quick & easy 7-layer salad just as delicious as the ones I remembered from my childhood, it was a snap to throw together! It seriously took no more than 15 minutes from start to finish, and that included making the dressing and chopping the vegetables. I think I’m hooked!

To make this easy seven layer salad you'll need: milk, cheese, carrots, lettuce, ranch dip, eggs, tomatoes, onions and mayonnaise.

Here is what you need:

1 head iceberg lettuce
1/2 red onion
2 tomatoes
1 10 oz bag frozen peas, thawed
1 small bag matchstick carrots
2-3 cups shredded cheddar cheese
3-4 hard boiled eggs
1/2 lb cooked bacon, chopped (optional)
salt & pepper
 
 Dressing
1 Hidden Valley Garden Green Onion packet
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup milk or buttermilk
 

Whisk together the ranch dip mix along with mayonnaise and milk.

Step 1: Make dressing; whisk together Green Onion dip packet with sour cream, mayonnaise, and milk until blended. Set aside.

Chop the lettuce along with the tomatoes.

Step 2:  Chop lettuce, tomatoes, & onion.

Peel the hard boiled eggs to prepare them for this easy 7 layer salad.

Step 3: Peel eggs & slice with egg slicer.

This seven layer salad looks beautiful when layered in a trifle bowl.

Step 4: Layer vegetables in large clear bowl (Depending on the size of your bowls, you might have to use 2). It’s best to start with the lettuce on the bottom, but the rest of the order doesn’t matter that much. I did lettuce, then carrots, then peas, then onion, then tomatoes, then a little more lettuce.

Top the seven layer salad with dressing so it can mix into all seven layers.

Step 5: Add a layer of dressing.

After adding the dressing layer to your salad, top with a layer of shredded cheese.

Step 6:  Add a layer of cheese.

Add sliced eggs and bacon to top off this beautiful layered salad.

Step 7: Add sliced eggs & bacon; sprinkle with salt & pepper
