"This will be hit at any party not just for taste but for A beautiful presentation of a Tex Mex 7 layer salad. Lots of flavor. The green salsa consists of Tomatillos, Onions, Chilies, Cilantro. Try one of these Salsa Verde or Smoky, Spicy Tomatillo Salsa Verde Aka Green Hell! or buy your favorite brand of Salsa Verde. Salad can be made the day before and refrigerated."
Serving Size: 1 (247 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 8
"This is a great recipe, Rita! It is avocado season on Guam so I'm always looking for new ways to use avocado instead of the standard guacamole. I cut thin slices of a corn tortilla, fried them until crisp then sprinkled them with sea salt and ancho chili powder then added this layer before the dressing. I used the Jalapeno Tequila Green Hot Sauce from Blair's Heat Collection. I served this with grilled chicken breasts and my DH ended up dicing his chicken and adding it to the salad. Thanks for posting!"
"Unfortunately I don't own a trifle bowl or similar but I did use all the ingredients
and layered them in rows on a platter. Very pretty presentation!
Made fresh salsa and this is not only very satisfying and pretty salad but healthy, too!
I replaced some of the black beans with kidney beans and garbanzos. Fresh cotija from
a local source. Reviewed for Veg Tag/February."
"This was a great salad for a potluck. It looked fantastic and the addition of the avocado and salsa verde gave it a different(and tasty) spin from the usual layered salads. Will definitely make again."
"Love this salad for a meal on hot evening. Where I live don't have green salsa, or black beans so I sub kidney beans and normal salsa... taste is still great! Thank you."
"This salad looks beautiful and is bursting with flavour. I can't think of a thing I would change. I used jarred roasted peppers, red kidney beans and grated cheddar cheese> 4 of us ate most of it and I enjoyed the little there was leftover for my lunch at work today. I think the flavours were even better after a night in the fridge."
"Oh my goodness this is so pretty looking and it is also so good for you. Everyone commented on this when we had some on Friday. Hmmmm hmmm Hmmm.

"Loved this, Thank you for sharing."
"Delicioso! I was pressed for time, so just threw this together, in a single serving size and it came out great. I didn't bother to mix anything, just layered and sprinkled. Very good."
"Perhaps I shouldn't rate this using stars as, for health reasons only, I didn't follow the recipe exactly. Substitutions were: I used jarred roasted red peppers, dried cilantro, lite sour cream (try plain yogurt, instead?), Miracle Whip salad dressing, & left off the olives. Very nice, indeed! Now, I just need a pretty trifle dish to show this off!!! Made & shared with grateful friends on 5/8/09. Thanks Rita, I will make this often!"
"This is one fantastic salad. I made it for lunch one day to serve 4 people. There was only enough left over for 1 person the next day. I used a green salsa for the green chili salsa and added a splash of hot sauce and dried cilantro as that is what I had on hand. I will be making this again in the near future."
"I think I just found me a new favorite salad recipe! So yummy and flavorful. Love all the different textures as you dig down through the salad. This is a real winner here!"
"DELISH! Is it possible??? A salad better than your regular 7-layer salad??!!?? This was so good!"
"This is one of my new favorite salads. I thought I liked the regular 7 layer until I tried this. This is a meal!"
