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

"I'm not quite sure WHY you would layer this if you have to toss it with the dressing right away to serve?? I did not layer, only used spinach and didn't add water (doubled the oil)for the dressing. It is a good salad and the dressing works well with it."
