Our friend's memorial service is tomorrow afternoon, and everyone will be gathering at the house afterward.
There are always so many sweets and meat trays at these things, I thought I'd take a 7 layer salad. I bought a big package of iceberg salad mix, and have a smaller one of Italian mix.
To go with I have:
broccoli, cauliflower, brocciflower, red & green sweet pepper, frozen peas, crumbled blue cheese, a little sweet onion, cooked crumbled bacon, white cheddar cheese, and grape tomatoes.
What you do is layer everything except the last three ingredients, then cover the top with mayo or Miricle Whip, being sure to seal all the edges. This keeps the air out and lets the flavors meld. Cover with foil and put in the fridge overnight. The next morning, sprinkle on the grated cheddar, crumbled bacon, and garnish with grape tomatoes.
We get by with a little help from our friends
