I was introduced with seven layer salad few years back. I served it in many of my summer time dinner parties and every time it gets lot of appreciation from the guests, it looks beautiful and taste great. As Easter is knocking the door you can keep this cool salad in your list. I think every guest will love this eye catching salad.

Top the salad with the mayonnaise . Garnish with spring onion. Wrap the bowl tightly with plastic wrap, chill for 5 to 24 hours. Serve with grated cheese and toss gently while you serve.
You can serve this seven layered salad in trifle dish so that your guest can enjoy all the colors of this delicious salad.
