““Ready, Set, Cook! Hidden Valley Contest Entry” Friends and family request my Yummy 7 Layer salad Yummy 7 Layer Salad. Now I just made it Yummier! A Party Salad thats Crisp, Crunchy and Refreshing. Make the day before for ease of the party day. Travels well so make it, bring it and watch it disappear. Oven Cooked Bacon With Black Pepper and Brown Sugar is an easy method and tasty on the salad.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • Salad
  • 1 small iceberg lettuce, cored and cut into pieces
  • 236.59 ml Baby Spinach, washed and spun dry
  • 236.59 ml frozen corn, rinsed and drained (optional)
  • 236.59 ml frozen peas, rinsed and drained
  • 354.88 ml celery, thinly sliced
  • 236.59 ml petite baby carrots, diced
  • 1 cucumber, peeled, seeded and sliced
  • 59.14 ml very thinly sliced red onion
  • 170.09 g sharp cheddar cheese (add more to taste) or 170.09 g monterey jack pepper cheese, shredded
  • 226.79 g bacon, cooked nice and crisp crumbled into pieces
  • Dressing
  • 177.44 ml mayonnaise
  • 14.79 ml sugar (adjust to taste)
  • 4.92 ml minced chives
  • 177.44 ml Greek yogurt
  • 28.34 g package Hidden Valley Original Ranch Dips Mix
  • 14.79 ml white balsamic vinegar


  1. Layer first 8 ingredients, one at a time, in a large glass bowl so you can see each layer.
  2. Mix the dressing ingredients together and pour evenly over the salad in the bowl.
  3. Add a layer of cheese, then a layer of bacon.
  4. Chill overnight.
  5. To serve using tongs go straight down into the salad to get all the layers.
  6. Optional:
  7. Make in individual margarita glasses. I would shred the lettuces for ease for eating out of the glass. It`s a nice way to use leftover ingredients from the main salad as well. This way you can bring the trifle to a pot luck and have two for home. ;).
