I always joke that this is my 17 layer salad instead of a 7 layer salad because there are so many yummy ingredients that I want to add to it! The best part is it is totally customizable to your liking!
This gluten-free 17 layer salad is my take on the seven-layer salad or in my case the however many layer salad you want to make today salad! Haha!
If you live in Arizona or watch the news you know that it is HOT here! I don’t feel like turning on the oven inside and I don’t really want to melt going outside to grill. This is the season of salad and crock pot meals!
This salad is my take on a 7 layer salad, which never ends up being 7 layers when I make it!I start out with good intentions of not putting everything in the layered summer salad but the kitchen sink but I usually end up with a 10ish layer salad. You can add and subtract any of the items I have in my salad and add in your own favorites! This salad changes layers based on what I am in the mood for but I always keep the top 2 layers the same.. mayo and cheese Who doesn’t love a salad topped with mayo and cheese?
I also love making this Caprese Salad and My Cowboy Ciao Copycat Salad when it's hot out!
Here’s How I make this gluten free summer layered salad:
I like to clean and chop all of my veggies while my bacon in cooking in the oven. That way everything is ready to assemble.
Once the bacon is cooked nice and crispy, let it cool on a papertowel lined plate. Chop it into bite sized pieces.
I usually buy premade hard boiled eggs. If you want to boil your own ahead of time that is fantastic. Remove the shells and slice them into rounds.
Now it’s time to make the salad.
I like to use a glass bowl so you can see all of the layers. First put down the lettuce. Then add the other ingredients ending with the eggs then the bacon then the mayo then the cheese. That way the lettuce doesn’t get soggy!
17 Layer Salad
Crisp and delicious layered salad. Perfect for hot days and keeps well in the fridge for leftovers!
I hope you have fun making and eating this layered salad as much as I do!
Best Wishes for Gluten-Free Dishes!
I am so glad you are here!
