This Seven-Layer Salad Is the Ultimate BBQ Side Dish


Print Recipe

Time to get chopping! We're getting into that time of year when everyone wants to eat outside to enjoy the nice weather. Backyard BBQs are always full of hot dogs, hamburgers and steaks...but what about the veggies?

This Seven-Layer Salad is a delicious way to get your fill of veggies, without having to suffer through a boring, tasteless salad. I'm not a big fan of salads - I know they're healthy...but a burger just tastes so much better!

This salad packs a serious flavor punch with the bacon, cheese and hard-boiled eggs. Make it in a clear bowl or trifle dish to really show off the different layers. It will look like you spent hours making this recipe, when it actually all comes together super quick.

This salad is easily customizable, but we went with the classic ranch-style ingredients this time around. Serve this up with your hot dogs and hamburgers, and you've got a meal to remember!
