I Spy Salad Recipe

We dug into this salad, named after a memory game we played with the kids. This colorful layered salad is chock-full of flavorful ingredients and garnished with cute hard-cooked egg-and-olive eyes on the top. Perky eyebrows are made with the sliced white portion of the eggs.—Leslie Dumm, Clevemand Heights, Ohio
