Overloaded with goodness, this 24-hour Lettuce Salad vanishes in a blink. Super refreshing, crazy delicious, with amazing flavors bursting in your mouth in every bite. All the ingredients perfectly complement each other. This easy to assemble salad absorbs all the great flavors as it sits in the fridge overnight before serving. Sprinkled with salty crispy bacon on top this crunchy salad captures the amazing flavor of the seven-layer salad in a not fussy way with fewer layers. I am obsessed with this salad and this has been my favorite among all the salad recipes out there. It is freaking good that every time my colleagues come to visit, they are asking for this. And this salad never settles on the table for long.
