Healthy Eating: 7 Layer Salad Recipe


Although I did not make any New Years Resolutions (I never do) I have always (well at least tried) to eat right.  Lucky for me, I actually love salads and anything green and leafy.  I prefer to crunch on a salad over sweets sometimes.  The 7 Layer Salad is the perfect go to recipe for anyone trying to incorporate a little green into their lives. The recipe is quick & simple, bold crunchy, creative & fun.  The idea is to layer 7 or more vegetables into a bowl with any kind of lettuce being the 1st layer.  Here is my recipe:

7 – Layer Salad


Romaine Lettuce (or whatever leaf you choose)



1 Green Bell Pepper

1 Red Onion

Frozen Sweet Peas

Miracle Whip


5 cooked & crumbled strips of bacon

Shredded Cheddar Cheese

A Big Bowl to hold it all

7 Layer salad 2


(I didnt put exact measurements because thats your preference)

Chop your fresh/raw Broccoli & Cauliflower (I use about 2 cups each)

Finely slice your onion (about 5 or 6 thin slices)

Finely slice your green pepper (about 5 or 6 thin slices)

Thaw your frozen sweet peas by running them under warm water (about 2 cups)

Cook & crumble your bacon

Now Layer

In a bowl empty your bagged lettuce

arrange your onions on top of that lettuce

arrange your green pepper on top of the onions

Cover the onions with the chopped cauliflower

Cover the chopped cauliflower with the chopped broccoli

Cover the chopped broccoli with the thawed peas

The last layer is Whipped Salad Dressing, take a big spoon and use the back of it to spread this on top of the peas covering them.

Sprinkle about a tablespoon of sugar over the Miracle Whip

Top with the shredded cheese, followed by the crumbled bacon

(6-8 servings)

What do you put in your 7 Layer Salad?
