 Pretty Layered Salad
A salad like this one is an appealing accompaniment to almost any dinner. You can change the mix of ingredients to include layers of your favorites. I like the tangy vinaigrette dressing with it, but ranch and other types are also very good. -Elaine Anderson Aliquippa, Pennsylvania
