24 Hour Layered Salad

I can’t believe Easter is almost here! These last 6 weeks have been a complete whirlwind, but our kitchen remodel is finally starting to wrap up!
This is one of my favorite holiday side dishes, part because I love my vegetables, part because my Mom made it when I was a kid at holidays too.  I love having a few dishes on the holiday menu that I can make the day before but still taste delicious.   If we’re having a lot of family over I will make a double batch, and you can serve it as is or toss together lightly just before serving.
