Nana's 7 Layer Salad

This is Nana.

This is Nana's 7 Layer Salad.

This is how I feel when I eat Nana's 7 Layer Salad.

Any questions?

 This salad is one of my mom's, aka Nana, favorite recipes. We enjoyed it often when I was growing up.  I remember mom entering this recipe in a 4-H cooking contest and winning first prize. It is perfect served in a trifle bowl since it allows you to see all the beautiful layers. If you want a lighter version you could simply use light dressing and/or light cheddar cheese.  The measurements are not exact which allows you to easily modify the amount needed for your family. 

Buon Appetito!
