7 layer salad seasoned with Dan-O's

Description

When I was thinking of making a 7-layer salad recipe this year, I realized I could use 7 layers of Dan-O’s Seasoning and it would be completely delicious and epic. And that’s what I did! This was the best 7-layer salad I ever tasted, and the old church ladies and whichever aunt of mine that used to make it probably should make me a trophy. 

This salad uses a bunch of the traditional veggies you would have during the holidays and makes them into a unified piece of deliciousness. Mine has celery, peas, romaine lettuce, bacon, parm cheese, red onion, and dressing. A lot of recipes call for eggs, but not mine! The dressing is a combination of mayo, sour cream, and sugar. It might sound weird, but don’t knock it until you try it. 

I made the bacon a day early. This recipe uses slightly crisper bacon, and I highly recommend making it in the oven and chopping it the day before. You can definitely use whatever cheese you’d like here, but I have found parmesan is perfect and needs nothing else. And seriously, I used 7 layers of Dan-O’s and it was INSANELY GOOD. That’s 7 layers of real herbs and spices that tied the whole thing together. 

My old southern neighbor said my 7-layer salad was her husband’s favorite thing out of the plate I brought over to them. So I hope your neighbors and family feel the same way! This stuff is incredible. Also, get a nice clear glass container for this because it can look real purty if done right. I realized I didn’t have one at the last minute so enjoy my plastic.
