Layered Spinach Salad | Overnight 7 Layer Salad | Party Food

Here's an easy and simple Layered Spinach Salad recipe that sits overnight in the refrigerator and will have your guests asking you where you got the recipe!

Whether you're planning a Holiday breakfast brunch, birthday, anniversary or graduation party, sports banquet, PTA meeting, or backyard BBQ,

What’s a party without food? Back by popular demand, as promised, I said I'd have some ideas for a brunch buffet, wine and libations set out and waiting for you!

Layered Spinach Salad

Overnight 7 Layer Spinach Salad



This is one of my favorites from when I belonged to the Junior Woman's Club, where I was a board member Recording Secretary. As a fundraiser, we put together a cookbook, and this recipe was very popular.

It's a great healthy salad that's quick and easy to prepare. Make it ahead of time, and let set-up in the refrigerator overnight. Present it in a pretty crystal glass trifle bowl so that you can show off the layers of your delicious creation!

The flavors just meld together and it's always a big hit at all those summer picnics, pool parties, family gatherings and holiday buffets.
