I love the classic 7 layer salad and I love veggies so I just kept adding more ingredients and now it's an 11 layer salad. I made it for Thanksgiving one year and it was the talk of the party and gobbled up fast. I have been told this is the best layer salad recipe ever and I am asked to bring it to all holiday dinners. I think the double layering is the key. This makes a big salad!
