Cindy's Layered Salad
Why I Love This Recipe
Another old family classic, this one is still served at every backyard barbeque. My sister still picks out all of the water chestnuts, and she's 30. While this salad is certainly old fashioned, it still has its charm. Great on a hot day for its cool, crisp flavors, it can be modernized too! Use darker greens if you wish, or cut egg yolks and use low-cal mayo for the dressing to lighten it up!
