Suzette: Little Sissy and I love us a hunk of lettuce especially when it is topped with bacon and floating in a delicious gorgonzola dressing. This makes for a beautiful presentation and is great for serving at a foo- foo ladies luncheon or your Easter celebration. This salad is a cinch to make and it is scrumptious.

Suzette: Not many people get overly excited about layered salad, but Amy and I sho nuff do. This recipe takes us back to our southern roots. It has been a family tradition to serve this at all of our holiday gatherings. Mom always used her trifle bowl to make this salad. It looks fabulous and it tastes even better.
