This is the perfect time to enjoy a variety of fresh fruit, especially when combined in a salad. But rather than the usual mixed version, create layers of color using your favorite seasonal fruits. Garnish with melon wedges or fresh mint sprigs.
Layered salads are back. "Stacked" might be today's trendy word, but these make-ahead favorites have been around for quite
some time. From congealed gelatin salads to options made with cornbread and vegetables, we've included an array of recipes
so you can taste and explore the many possibilities. All make great choices for family reunions, cookouts, weeknight dinners,
or chic entertaining; Layered Lebanese Salad and Layered Cornbread-and-Turkey Salad can serve as main or side dishes. And they're so lovely to look at, you may be tempted to use one as a centerpiece.
For the Love of Layer
