I love 7 layer salad but especially this time of year, it is so easy to make. I make a taco salad version, which my family loves. You will need a large bowl, if you have a clear bowl, it looks especially nice.
Layer in order:
6 cups chopped lettuce
1 cup chopped tomatoes
1 cup chopped green onions
1 cup chopped avocado
1 cup cubed cooked chicken
1 cup salsa
In a separate bowl mix together, 1 cup sour cream and 1/2 cup mayonnaise, add 2 tsp. chili powder, 1 tsp. ground cumin, if you like it more spicy a couple drops of red pepper sauce. Mix it together and spread over the top of the layered salad carefully and all the way to the edges. Next spread 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese and 1/2 sliced black olives. Refrigerate for a couple of hours and serve.
This is great with some bread and summer fruits for supper.
Yes I know it is technically more that 7 layers but who cares when it tastes so good and is so easy to make. You can make this early in the day and have supper all ready.
