Seven Layer Southwestern Salad and Our Menu Plan

By May 9, 2011April 15th, 2019Cooking, Menu Planning, Salads

Happy Monday! Did you all enjoy your Mother’s Day? I spent my day doing what I love, baking cupcakes, cooking, filming and blogging. As you read this, I’m on my way to the Walmart headquarters in Arkansas for a special cooking demonstration. Look for more on this soon!

This Seven Layer Southwestern Salad is perfect for a make-ahead meal or even to serve at a special luncheon. I like that you can keep it as simple as you want, or add any ingredients that you like.
