The Quesadilla style 7 layer salad recipe is a great choice for those who like it hot. Lightly fry a few tortillas and set them aside. Place one on the bottom of your salad bowl.

Here's another 7 layer salad recipe to enjoy often. Mix up a batch of assorted greens, such as a spring mix of mesclun, hearts of romaine and spinach in a separate bowl. Lay down a bed of the mixed greens and proceed to layer your choice of veggies. Sweet bell peppers, mushrooms, alfalfa sprouts, sunflower seeds or blanched almond slices make a nice, crisp combination. Top it off with salad shrimp, diced chicken, crab or Krab(TM) meat makes a fine meal.

How about a hoagie style 7 layer salad recipe - without the hoagie? A simple bed of greens, layered with tomatoes, sweet onions, green onions, freshly shaved Parmesan, deli style roast beef, pastrami and, oh, maybe a few croutons makes a healthful and tasty dish. If you must have the hoagie roll, dress it with a garlic spread and serve it on the side. A honey mustard or poppy seed dressing, drizzled over this salad is a fabulous and satisfying dish.

It's easy to see how the 7 layer salad recipe can become a daily ritual. The important thing is to make this salad recipe your own by adding your own favorite salad ingredients.
