At Iftar/dinnertime, we need to provide a salad that is rich in nutrients, which can be found in the seven-layer salad.

It's easy, it's gorgeous, and it'll please everyone at your party. The salad makes a great make-ahead recipe because it's served chilled. However, since some of the ingredients (particularly the iceberg lettuce) lose their crispness quickly, you'll want to serve it within one or two days.



1 1/4 cups mayonnaise

1/2 cup sour cream

1 1/2 teaspoons cider vinegar

1 tablespoon honey

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper


1 head iceberg lettuce chopped

2 cups diced tomatoes

1 1/2 cups frozen peas thawed

1/3 cup thin sliced red onions

6 hard-boiled eggs peeled and sliced

2 cups shredded sharp cheddar

6 slices crisp cooked bacon

2 green onions thinly sliced


whisk together the mayonnaise, sour cream, cider vinegar, honey, salt and pepper.

in a large clear bowl or trifle dish layer the iceberg lettuce (reserving about 2 cups), tomatoes, peas, and onions. using the sliced eggs position them on their sides.

use any extra eggs and the reserved lettuce to sturdy them. spread the dressing over the top and smooth to seal. cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate from 4 hours to overnight.
