7 layer salad


August was always a time for family reunions in our family. If you are attending or hosting a reunion this 7 layer salad may be the perfect dish to take. The salad serves between 12 to 14 or more depending on serving size. I hope that you enjoy your Sundays in August as well as well as this beautiful salad.
