Seven Layer SALAD and Blogapaloosa 'Sweet Chef' Giveaway!

I hope you've all had a chance to head over to Randee's Organized Chaos to say "Hello!" and enter to win a FANTASTIC bag and BLING, BLING flip flops, but if you haven't - what are you waiting for?!

She is a great friend, super-mom, amazing crafter and FUH-NEE - Oh this girl makes me laugh until my sides hurt!  And who doesn't need a little more laughter in their day?!  Seriously.

Blogapaloosa is being hostessed today by Melanna at Rhapsody of Cacophony.  She makes the sweetest sewing projects I've seen in a while - perfect for the little princess in your life!  Here's what you could win!!
Pink Lemonade Apron and Chef Hat 
with matching Recipe Cards

A 4T (ish - it could probably fit 3T-5T quite easily since it's adjustable), easy on/off (yeah velcro!) chef hat and apron set, hand made by Melanna. The pink fabric has little tiny polka dots on it that don't show up on camera, so I think it's even sweeter in person.

 And she even included some matching recipe cards, because every new chef has to start her recipe collection at a very young age!

In keeping with Melanna's chef theme, I've decided to share a GREAT salad recipe with you - perfect for your new recipe cards!  With the yummy dressing, it reminds me of Seven-Layer-Dip, which is to say that it is Yum-O!!

Seven-Layer Salad

Fresh greens (I used Red and Green Leaf Lettuce - no iceberg please)
1 small can black beans rinsed and drained
1 small can corn (grilled corn is even better)
cilantro, chopped
green onions, chopped
avocado, diced
tomato, diced
green bell pepper, diced
tortilla chips, crushed

Prepare and toss together first 8 ingredients.  Sprinkle with crushed tortilla chips for garnish.  Serve with dressing below.

Mix together:
1 16 oz. jar sour cream (I used Light)
1 8 oz. jar mayo (Light again)
1 package Ranch seasoning
1 package taco seasoning
milk (to thin if you like your dressing runnier)

Don't forget!! To enter today's Blogapaloosa giveaway, hop on over to Melanna's blog Rhapsody of Cacophony and tell her I sent you!

Good luck!
