At our house a layer salad HAS to have:
- Dice all the veggies etc up to bite size pieces.
- In a clear glass bowl, layer salad ingredients may sure not to add all the green stuff together or it won't be as pretty.
- Cover the salad with mayo (or other thick dressing, we often use homemade blue cheese too) to seal it all in.
- Putting this salad in jars makes it easy to take with you to work or to grab for a fast meal.
