Mexican Seven Layer Salad

This is a twist on the old classic 7 layer salad. I love this because of the Mexican flavor. It is just a fun salad and pretty. It is light and great at BBQ’s. This is my version which is fun with a whole new flavor.

Instructions

  1. 1In a clear big bowl. Clear makes it just that much more visual to see all the layers. Add a layer of lettuce, 1/2 of the beans, 1/2 sliced onion, 1/2 corn mixed with green 1/2 the chilies, 1/2 tomatoes and and 1/3 avacado (drizzled with a little lemon to keep it from browning), and a little cheese, Repeat the same layer but omit the cheese. Make sure these are thin layers. Top with the dressing (sour cream, mayo, and salsa) and spread on top of the salad. Then top with cheese and olives. Before serving add the remaining avacado. Cover and all day and serve.
  2. 2I cover with one piece of plastic wrap pushed directly on top of the salad. Then I add another piece on top to seal it well.
