Layered Spinach Salad-#2

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Bon24

This has been a summer staple in our family for about 30 years-where it originally came from, I don't know. My Mom & I have been avid cooks since I was a child and we both collect recipes from everywhere & fool around ourselves,quite a bit. You can use boiled ham from the deli and canned bacon bits for no cooking at all. It's also very easy to expand the recipe for pot lucks, parties, or a buffet.

We make nearly this recipe. The only thing we add is red pepper rings in a layer after eggs. Also, we add a layer of crumbled bacon and top with the bacon bits as you have here. This is delicious and gets better after a day in the fridge. simply a wonderful layered salad!
