Layered Summer Salad

This one looks great on the table and makes a great addition to any out door bar be cue, or indoor setting! Enjoy!

In a large clear bowl, layer the following ingredients beginning on the bottom and working up.


1 can chick peas
2 cups of thinly sliced carrots
2 cups thinly sliced celery
1 cup thinly sliced red onion
4 cups shredded lettuce
2 pints or so of cherry or grape tomatoes, halved (arrange them cut side down on the top - they look really pretty)
Note: - you may use a couple of cans of tuna and layer it right on the chick peas to turn this into a light lunch or supper)

On the side, make or buy your favourite dressing - Epicure Salad dressings are what I use - the Ranch is GREAT with this one! Don't pour the dressing on the salad until you are ready to eat - then, pour on top, and toss gently - YUM!!!!!!

Try it and let me know if you like it!

Cheers to all!
