Layered Salad

This is such an easy salad, no recipe is really required. The lettuce I would recommend is romaine, (on the bottom) because when everything else is piled on top, this lettuce holds up with freshness and crunch.
Other than that, just start layering… I used sweet peppers, cucumbers, green onions, grape tomatoes, a little feta cheese, frozen corn, chickpeas, and avocados. But any vegetable that hold up would be just fine. If you want to add some extra crunch, toast some strips of tortilla and add to the top. I will include a dressing but you can always go simple  as well. My daughter put together one with a little olive oil, lemon juice, dijon mustard and worcestershire and it was delicious.

The recipe comes from a great cookbook- Forks Over Knives by Del Sroufe. Enjoy!

Next time I would slice the tortilla strips thinner and pile them up in the centre- would make for a nicer presentation. :)

Here's the link to the recipe:


  1. Looks nice! When corn comes in season I like to do a fresh corn salad with black beans, green onion, tomato and avocado, with a dressing using olive oil, fresh lime juice and chili powder.

    1. Oh I agree- I love that salad too, Meg!! And sometimes I also add cucumber, chopped black loves and light touch of feta. So good.
