    I agree, this is a wonderful - and very pretty - salad

    This is not a layered salad but it is beautiful. I use the Mediterranean or Italian mixed greens in a bag so that I get darker colored greens. It makes the red of the strawberries and the orange of the oranges really pop. And the taste is to die for. I made this for a get together once and they have asked for it every time we've gotten together since. (I keep trying to tell them I have other great recipes to share too. icon_wink.gif )

    I love any layered salad be it 7 or 11!!! But I would like to send a word of advice from a "southern" luncheon lady!!!!! This type of salad is lovely to behold but a darn hard item to serve!!!! The salad looks sort of pitiful all pulled apart on the plate when you dig into all those layers....you either get some of the top and sort of some of the rest!!!! I would like to suggest a layered salad spread out more like a 13x9 dish and you make the layers a little thinner....it is easier to take a portion out and looks not so messy on the plate. Don't take this wrong...I love salad but when you do a "luncheon" thing I know that presentation and looks take on some importance.

    I totally agree with Janice. I now make my layered salads in a 9 x 13 because of that same reason. You get more of the dressing and all the layers of the salad. It serves well with a spatual or a large spoon. It's not as 'pretty', but more practical.

    ncmysteryshopper - on the rainbow salad, what other dressings would be good. We really don't like balsamic, but that salad looks wonderful and would like to maybe use for upcoming family gatherings.

    Regarding this salad, please read the review as a raspberry dressing was used. I tried it that way also and was more than pleased!

    You guys are the best. I appreciate all the great replies. Now I have to decide which one to use. I want to make that fruitcocktail cheese ball thing I saw posted and have that with Wheat Thin crackers. It's never easy to decide what to have when you are serving women of such an age spread. If I have a main dish salad, the cheeseball thingy and dessert do I need anything else? Oh yeah, I forgot one of the "grandma's" in the group is bringing potato salad because she wants to. I didn't have the heart to tell her no.

    Perhaps some cocktailsized breads with a spread....the spread could be anything from a honey butter to a spicy type with some hot sauce. It will depend on what salad you choose. Another thought would be some homemade cheese stix or any kind of bread you want.
    Most important...make it as easy on yourself as possible. A good looking spread helps the eyes help the tongue....does that make sense to your?

    I was just looking at the fruit cocktail cheeseball recipe yesterday (surely there aren't two on zaar!). I'm making a cheeseball to send to a party tomorrow night.

    I'll bet it's the same one. I thought it looked interesting. I love to try new stuff on guests. My friends have come to expect it! The grandkids and people at work, too are my taste testers. I always say "new recipe, tell me what you think" I have another group coming the first Tuesday of the month, so I'll go through the same thing again. But this next one won't be a dinner type but more finger foods.
