Classic Layered Salad

Classic Layered Salad recipe
photo by:kraft
There's a reason this layered salad is classic: The flavors of red onions, peas, ham, mayo, Parmesan and tomatoes combine for a foolproof potluck winner.

One healthy and nice to look at !
I have been making this recipe for 20 years, love it. Although I do not put the onions in and I use Miracle Whip instead of the mayo.
I have seen this salad at our local grocery store and paid $6.99 for it on a regular basis! I gave it a little of my own twist from this recipe: chopped the onions instead of rings, added a layer of shredded carrot, and for the toppings I used half sour cream to half mayo for a lighter taste & then finished off with a bit of crumbled bacon (instead of using ham inside) Either way... its a crowd pleaser!
This is not an outdated recipe. It's delicious. Presentation even after the first serving is very attractive!!!! What was that other person talking about it being old & not easy on the eyes.
This salad is great for any get together everyone enjoyed it!
Let me suggest another combination of ingredients...chopped lettuce on the bottom...cooked pasta (small shells)...shelled edamame (right from the freezer bag)...sliced olives...tomato wedges...thin sliced cucumber around the edge of the bowl near the top (very thin slices will stick to the side of the bowl)...sliced hard boiled egg...chopped green onion...cover with Kraft ranch dressing...decorate with kraft grated cheddar cheese and chopped green onion. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate. Great for an evening when you arent home to cook or to take to a pot luck party. You could put a layer of ham or tuna in there somewhere; however, I have found peple like it without the meat.
This potluck staple is as outdated as the lime Jell-O mold. Plus, layered foods look great until the first person digs into it. Then it looks unappetizing and messy.
I served this layered salad at my daughter's Christening. Delicious! Several people asked me for the recipe!
