{PW Layered Salad}

During my menu planning last week (and first week at cooking my way through The Pioneer Woman Cooks) I got a little distracted by items on the PW blog.  That's when I found her recipe for Layered Salad.  I remembered a friend making it for an event and decided to reduce the batch for dinner that night.  Doesn't it look delicious!?

It has all sorts of tasty ingredients like bacon, eggs, cheese, green onions and tomatoes.  I love how she displays ingredients in her blog posts so you are drooling before you even get to the cooking/assembly of the recipes.  Did I mention that I may have to take up regimented exercise with my cookbook challenge?

And if you need a little additional help in the kitchen, all of her recipes are shown step by step in both the book and her blog.

I decided that I would keep all of the recipes unchanged as I made them, but I did tweak this slightly by using her homemade ranch dressing instead of the basic dressing from the recipe.  It was delicious!  It makes for a great presentation which is why it is popular for potlucks.

I also made a fresh batch of bread in my bread machine to go with the salad.  I found it online and it is actually called "The Best Bread Machine Recipe" and I'm a believer.  Recipe to come!
