A Summer Salad Idea

Wishing you and yours a Happy 4th of July!

see www.kraftrecipes.com for lots of layering ideas.

I love salads, but in the summer I really, really love salads. I thought you might like to see one of the summer salads that I like to make. This one can use everything but the kitchen sink, veggie wise.

You can choose to use farm fresh veggies or the grocery store choices. I have to admit that I really like to use steam fresh veggies from the frozen case for my peas and corn. Just so easy!  But if you like to shell peas and cut corn off of the cob, be my guest. Ha! 

The only directions from me would be to choose your own dressing, or to provide a selection to pour on individual servings. 

You can also vary the veggies according to what you prefer. 

Vary amounts depending how many servings you want. I only use loosely goosey recipes. :-) Few measurements. 

Tip: A tall clear bowl will show off how pretty this layered salad is. 

Start with a base of Lettuce. 
Then layer veggies of your choice.
Chopped tomatoes
Chopped red sweet peppers 
Cooked / thawed frozen corn
Chopped spring / mild onion
Thawed frozen peas
Chopped radishes
Chopped cucumbers
Salad dressing
Shredded mild cheddar
Crumbled bacon, you choose how much!

Optional, sliced hard boiled eggs.

You can create this salad for two to twenty people by just increasing the amount of veggies.   There are no rules...just create as you wish!
