Layered Salad Reuben-Style Recipe

Publisher Photo
Here's a fun twist on the traditional seven-layer salad that's great for large gatherings any time of year. It combines lettuce and tomato with Reuben sandwich fixings. I like to buy pastrami in 1/4-inch slices at the deli counter and chop it up at home, but you can use leftover corned beef instead. —Amy Smith, Avon, Connecticut

"This was a really good salad recipe. I will make one change next time and only use half of the dressing. People can always add more at the table if they like, but soggy salad is not good."
