How to Make Seven Layer Salad

Learn how to make the king of all salads: the Seven Layer Salad. This Midwestern classic gets a makeover and is laced with a delicious, tangy dressing.

Directions
1. 
Prepare Holiday Dijon Vinaigrette. In a large skillet melt butter over medium heat. Add pecan halves. Cook 4 to 5 minutes or until pecans are lightly toasted, stirring frequently. Sprinkle sugar and salt over pecans; cook and stir for 1 minute more. Transfer pecans to a medium bowl; cool.

    To serve on a buffet, add only about 1/4 cup dressing; serve remaining dressing on the side.
