FOOD FUN: Layered Salad In A Glass Bowl

For people who love salad—and especially for those who don’t—a straight-sided 3-quart glass bowl makes those greens and other ingredients look so much more inviting.

So today’s tip is: Dig out your glass bowl, and if you don’t have one, get one. A glass mixing bowl doubles as a salad bowl/serving bowl.

The bowl in the photo is filled with a reduced-calorie, reduced-fat version of the Seven Layer Salad, created by Kraft. A few small changes to the classic recipe save you 80 calories and 8g of fat, including 2.5g of saturated fat, per serving.

Yet, this better-for-you version still has all seven layers of flavor. Prep time 20 minutes, rest time 1 hour.

Ingredients For 12 One-Cup Servings

  • 1 package (9 ounces) baby spinach leaves
  • 1 red pepper, chopped
  • 4 green onions, sliced
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen peas, thawed
    Layer your favorite salad ingredients in a glass bowl. It makes salad look that much more inviting to hesitant eaters. Photo courtesy Kraft.
  • 3/4 cup reduced fat mayonnaise, sour cream or a combination
  • 3/4 cup 2% milk shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 4 slices cooked lower sodium turkey bacon, chopped

    1. LAYER first 4 ingredients in clear glass bowl.

    2. SPREAD mayonnaise evenly over salad to edge of bowl; sprinkle with cheese. Top with bacon.

    3. REFRIGERATE 1 hour. Toss just before serving.

    NOTE: The salad can be refrigerated up to 6 hours before serving. Keep the bacon out of the fridge—ideally, cook it shortly before serving—and add it just before you bring the bowl to the table.
