Yeah, well, the title is a bit misleading. This salad never hurt anyone and does not only exist in the city. In fact, it is the teddy-bear of salads and is the international salad of love. Anyhow, the salad is amazing…it is powerful stuff and a title like “Plain old Salad” or “Salad to Make your Day” just didn’t seem to get it. So, that leaves me with “Urban Assault Salad”.
We love to make and eat this salad so I thought I would share. You have probably come across 7-layer salad before and this is our version of it. I hope you enjoy!
7 Layer Salad
1 head shredded lettuce (iceberg if you must…otherwise something better)
1 bunch/pkg fresh spinach – broken
4 hard boiled eggs – chopped
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
1 pkg uncooked peas – thawed (or not 🙂 )
1 bunch green onions – chopped
1/2 lb bacon cooked and crumbled (We always cook too much bacon so I can “snack” as we prepare the stuff. I recommend it!)
Layer ingredients as listed…this makes a lot so have a good sized bowl ready
1 cup mayonaise
1/2 pkg Hidden Valley Ranch mix
1/2 cup sour cream
Spread dressing on top of salad and top with a sprinkling of cheese and bacon
Ok, I know…this is just a salad…but somewhere in the construction of this salad is a mystical combination that lets you see into other worlds, to ride on the waves of time and space, to dance among the stars….well…it really rocks anyhow!
Holler if you’ve ever (or never) had this stuff or if you have a variation. I’d love to hear other folks’ experiences in dream land. Of course, as always, please feel free to just say “hi” too!
