This Simple Make-Ahead 7 Layer Salad recipe is beaming with tons of fresh veggies including peas, eggs, & cheese. All layered in a clear glass serving bowl & topped with a creamy mayo dressing. Gluten Free & Vegetarian.
So not only is this salad delicious, it's ever so perfect for gatherings, parties, & even just quick lunches or dinners.
And I'm Really not quite sure Why it took me so long to make one.
Especially since I've always been a big fan of salads and peas for that matter.
But they must be in the form of salads.... cause for some reason I'm just not a big fan of cooked peas.
Do you guys like cooked peas? I don't know maybe it's just a texture thing or I think they lose a lot of their bright vibrant flavor cooked.
Any-who, I think either way you're going be a big fan of this Simple Make Ahead 7 Layer Salad Recipe!
And you can see Lola bean is as well..
I had a difficult time keeping this family member out of the salad..haha! Cause she was definitely a fan.
So you see the struggle can be real anytime I'm dealing with food...especially cheez.
Lola bean will be there even though in this picture she is trying to play it off all nonchalant!
Guess she gets it honestly though since cheese is my weakness for sure. But hey, the way I see it at least you're getting in a healthy dose of veggies with your cheese & mayo.
Anyway for real though my friends, let me just share why you'll wanna make this salad.
