Vegan 7-Layer Salad

Raise your hands if you are A) from the Midwest, B) have been to a community or church potluck, or C) ate at your grandmother’s dinner table.

You’ve probably had a 7-layers salad if you answered yes to any of these questions. Hello to its vegan counterpart.

This recipe was a request from a reader, and since I had just mastered Vegan Mayonnaise as well as Coconut Bacon. (And Eggplant Bacon), it seemed like the perfect time.

If you have never tried a 7-layer (or layered) salad, it is a mixture of lettuce, bacon, cheese, and vegetables. The dressing is usually a mix of sugar, mayonnaise, and sour cream. Healthy, right? ; )

This version is similar to the traditional version except that it substitutes coconut bacon and mayonnaise for sugar and mayonnaise and carrots for cheese.
