    LOVE 7-layer Salad. But we always put a layer of hard-boiled egg slices in. Wonder if that’s a regional thing?

      I’m not sure Laura but I’ve never seen one with bacon or cauliflower in it either and I love that. Do you use mayo in yours? I”m not a fan of mayo and would like to use something else but what????? HELP someone.

    Joy,I use equal parts of mayo and sour cream(and the sugar,little vinegar) in mine.Ive always used bacon too but no cauliflower,I use celery though.I love the bacon in it!
