New Seven-Layer Salad

Makes approximately six one-cup servings


1/2 cup fat-free mayonnaise
1/2 cup fat-free sour cream
1 tablespoon chopped dill
1 tablespoon capers
1 tablespoon grainy Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon hot sauce (or to taste)
1 teaspoon cracked black pepper (or to taste)
Salt (to taste)
(Note: You may wish to thin this out with a bit of low-fat buttermilk.)


1 cup iceberg lettuce, chopped finely
1 cup romaine lettuce, chopped finely
1/2 cup cucumber, julienned
1/4 cup shredded carrots
1 cup blanched fresh corn kernels
1 cup yellow tomato, chopped
1 cup red tomato, chopped

Step 1
Combine all dressing ingredients and whisk together well. Refrigerate when done.

Step 2
Prepare salad ingredients. Starting at the top of the above list, place each ingredient in the bottom of a clear glass container. For instance, iceberg lettuce goes in first, followed by the romaine lettuce, the julienned cucumber, the carrots and so forth. Don't be afraid to pack or compress the ingredients a bit as you go if you're running out of room. If you're serving the salad soon, add dressing when each layer is finished. Otherwise, reserve dressing until just before serving. When finished, refrigerate.
