Hello everyone and welcome to Tempt My Tummy Tuesday. My sister, Lana, and I co-host this blog carnival. We share recipes, kitchen and cooking tips, restaurant reviews, and anything food related that you want to share. You know the rule of a blog carnival, please mention the blog or TMTT in your post and link back to us. Don’t forget to use Mr. Linky, down below. PLEASE DO NOT HOST YOUR OWN Tempt My Tummy Tuesday with Mr. Linky. Thank You.
FIRST, thank you all for your concern, prayers, and well wishes over the last week. For those who read my blog, regularly, you were reading, what I am referring to as, The Pig Chronicles. OR, “How we survived The Great Pig Outbreak of ’09″! Seriously, the Swine Flu kicked my hind region, but I am on the mend. My daughter Grace is doing better, as well.
I apologize for not visiting everyone’s TMTT blog posts, last week. I tried to get to a few, then gave up. I was not much for the computer and blogging, last week.
Now, onto the show…..
I have shared this salad in the past. I am reviving it since I recently made it, and took a picture. Now, as with most recipes, everyone has their own version of it. I am going to share three variations on this theme. I call it a 7 – Layer Salad, or the 24 – Hour Layered Salad. Which every you call it, no big deal. The idea is , you have multiple layers of yummy veggies topped with a dressing, served in a trifle bowl. Let is sit overnight, in the ‘fridge, and then enjoy it the next day!
- 6 cups iceberg lettuce and6 cups chopped romaine lettuce
- 1/2 cup crumbled bacon
- 3/4 cup red onion, chopped
- 1 (10oz) package frozen green peas, thawed
- 1 cup chopped red/orange/or yellow bell pepper
- 3/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
- Dressing: Combine 3/4 cup mayo, 3/4 cup sour cream and 1 package dry Italian dressing mix. Mix well and pour on top of the salad to seal the salad.
- Variation 2 Dressing: 2 cups mayo, 1 tsp sugar, 1 tsp curry powder
- Variation 3 Dressing: 2 cups mayo, 1 tsp sugar
Once all layers are completed, seal with plastic wrap and chill up to 24 hours.
