Layered Salad for a Crowd

This salad is a favorite of my three sons. I took it to a luncheon honoring our school district’s food service manager, and she asked for the recipe. I like to make the dressing the day before so the flavors blend together. —Linda Ashley, Leesburg, Georgia

    Ive made this for many years. I never used the dill so thats on my list of things to try. I just use ingredients in house at the time. I believe the seasoning blend maybe a packet in the dressing aisle of the store. I use Italian seasoning .

    Could this be the "seasoning blend" ? McCormick's Perfect Pinch Salad Supreme seasoning...

    I would love to try this recipe but I don’t know what seasoning blend is. I see quite a few other people asked the same question but received no reply.

    Seasoning blend = Mrs. Dash or comparable blend.

    seasoning blend would be like a PACKAGE of dry ranch, or anything that is dry that you can make a sauce or add to mayo. EXCELLENT SALAD. Also add cherry tomatoes.

    Is "seasoning blend" dried ranch dressing?

    My guess is a seasoning blend like McCormick's Salad Supreme or Crunchy Salad Toppings in a bottle in the spice aisle.
