I’ve been making layered salads for a long time!  They’re easy and taste great, everyone seems to love them.  The best part is that you can make them way ahead of time (overnight is best) so they’re easy to take along to events!

When I posted this layered salad a couple of years ago, readers suggested that the salad was so much easier to serve when placed in a 9×13 pan and of course you were right!  You get bits and bites of every little ingredient with less digging.   Ranch 7 Layer Salad is loaded up with fresh veggies, leftover turkey and a homemade ranch style dressing! It's a definite crowd pleaser!

A lot of layered salads call for a simple dressing made of mayonnaise and sugar but I prefer to add in fresh herbs to give it more flavor.  My  favorite dressing is this homemade Buttermilk Ranch (I could actually drink it, it’s that good) so I created a version of the ranch dressing to add to this salad.Ranch 7 Layer Salad is loaded up with fresh veggies, leftover turkey and a homemade ranch style dressing!

This recipe does call for leftover turkey (or chicken) but you can certainly use whatever leftovers you have…  ham is delicious in this recipe too!

  1. I love layer salads like this! What a gorgeous salad for picnics, parties, and dinner!!! Love it!

  2. Gorgeous salad, Holly. I love the homemade dressing! I just want to dig in!

  3. Oh my gosh I love that there’s bacon on top! Love the flavors here, I’ve only seen Mexican and Greek versions of 7 layer dips. Fun idea!

  4. Love the tip about putting it in a 9 x 13 dish!! Always have loved this salad but didn’t like digging to the bottom of a tall bowl.

  5. I made this over the weekend. I had houseguests in town for my daughter’s baby shower and I wanted a make-ahead dish that did not require heating as people would be eating at different times. I served this with soft tortillas and most ate it as a chicken wrap. (I used a rotisserie chicken from the deli.) I will be making this again at their request but I think I will make a second batch of dressing to serve on the side for dipping.

  6. Love the recipes thank you
