Layered salad… Every family get-together, my aunt would make a 7 layer salad that was so delicious. Everyone looked forward to it, as we'd heap spoonfuls of the creamy deliciousness onto our plates.

This layered salad recipe, that I'm about to share with you, is one way I've found to get my youngest to eat his veggies. He can't get enough of this salad.

While this recipe comes from a family cookbook made for us as a wedding gift, I'm not sure it's the same recipe my aunt made. It seems a little different but still similar in some ways.

Either way, it's a family favorite and perfect for upcoming barbecues, Thanksgiving dinner, and Easter dinner too. We love to serve up this layered salad with garlic parmesan chicken kabobs or even just a weeknight CrockPot pork roast!
