First of all, I think we can all agree that the holidays are an extremely busy time of the year. Therefore an easy, tasty yet stunning dish is always a welcomed addition to the menu. So perhaps you will agree with me that this Christmas Layered Salad fits the bill! 

Christmas Layered Salad

While many people enjoy spending a lot of time baking and preparing for the holidays, this is one recipe that does not require a lot of time. Because this Christmas Layered Salad is a festive and colorful side dish, it’s also a perfect side dish for all of your holiday entertaining. Just grab a pretty glass trifle bowl and start layering the ingredients. The amount of each ingredient will obviously vary depending on the size of the trifle bowl. 

  • lettuce
  • black olives
  • tomatoes
  • mushrooms
  • peas
  • eggs
  • cheese
  • cooked chicken
  • red peppers
  • corn
  • salad dressing
  • garnish

Garnish Options:

  • chives
  • fresh basil
  • fresh parsley
  • lettuce

Finally, refrigerate the Christmas Layered Salad for at least one hour before serving. Rather than try to cover all of the salad with dressing, just fill a small glass bowl with additional dressing and serve on the side. Feel free to use your favorite salad dressing although I like Ranch or a creamy Italian salad dressing.  In addition, if you need the salad dressing to be gluten-free, be sure to use a gluten-free brand or make your own homemade gluten-free dressing (see recipe below).

Another fabulous salad is this Strawberry Spinach Salad. It’s also healthy, a very pretty salad and naturally gluten-free. The tasty recipe for homemade Pomegranate Vinaigrette and Poppy Seed Dressing would work great drizzled over the Christmas Layered Salad, plus is gluten-free too!
