“I grew up with a traditional layered salad with peas and bacon and cheese. This one is a little different and I like it!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Use a 4-5 quart serving bowl, preferably clear glass so layers are visible.
  2. Whisk all dressing ingredients in a small bowl until well combined. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  3. Spread spinach over bottom of serving bowl.
  4. Top with chicken.
  5. Place a row of red pepper strips around the sides of the bowl and scatter remaining strips in the middle.
  6. Place egg wedges against side of bowl, the rest in the middle.
  7. Top with even layers of lettuce and carrots.
  8. Spread dressing over top to the edges of bowl to seal.
  9. Refrigerate two hours, or cover airtight and refrigerate overnight.
  10. Just before serving sprinkle with cheese, pecans and bacon.
  11. I prefer to toss it as well, but some people just spoon through the layers.
