Well I was not sure about this salad the first time I made it but everyone else loved it...So I decieded to give it another try and found that it was really good just different. I guess the combination of everything makes it very interesting. I just put it together like a normal seven layer salad with the dressing sealing the top. Will keep this one around for when I get bored with other salads.
I loved that this was different from the usual layered salad. I made as posted except to leave the bacon on the side since not everyone here likes bacon in their salads (crazy, I know :) ) I know I will be bringing this salad to barbecues this summer ~ easy and delicious! Thank you for posting a keeper!
This was a HUGE hit! I took it to my midwifery meeting and the exact words were "this salad is addicting" from the woman who doesn't like "stuff" on her salad! LOL Another lady said she doesn't usually like creamy dressings but loved this one! I was worried that the red pepper sitting overnight would flavor the whole thing and be over powering, but it wasn't at all! The only change I made was to use romain lettuce instead of ice berg. I think this will become a regular in my potluck rotation.
