Seven Layer Salad for Easter

seven layer salad

A few years ago, I decided that I wanted to make a seven layer salad for Easter dinner. I played around with a few recipes to get the dressing the way I wanted it and to put my favorite ingredients into the salad. And now it has become one of our Easter traditions. I never knew I could love seven layer salad so much!

It’s so pretty on the table. Each little layer adds something new, and it’s just plain delicious! I really only make this for Easter Sunday and think it’s the perfect addition to our traditional Easter menu.

Seven Layer Salad
Recipe type: Salad
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 15
  • Head of iceberg lettuce
  • 8 eggs, boiled
  • Real bacon bits (I like Hormel)
  • Green onions, chopped
  • Shredded Cheddar cheese
  • Frozen green peas, thawed
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  1. Chop the iceberg lettuce and put in a good layer on the bottom of your clear dish; I like to use a trifle dish.
  2. Chop the hard boiled eggs. I'm not a neat chopper, so I just chop them up so they fit nicely in the dish.
  3. Add the eggs on top of the lettuce.
  4. Add the bacon bits on top of the eggs.
  5. Add the layer of chopped green onions.
  6. Add enough shredded Cheddar to cover the top.
  7. Add the peas to the top.
  8. In a separately bowl, stir together the mayonnaise, sour cream, sugar, and lemon juice.
  9. Pour the mayonnaise mixture on top of the trifle dish for the seventh layer.
  10. Refrigerate the salad until ready to serve.
