These crowd-pleasing spring greens will have everyone going back for seconds. Let's hop to it!

The Johnson Family Recipe: Seven Layer Salad
A staple on our family's Easter table every year is a take on a Seven Layer Salad. In fact, my sister Marcie's favorite meal is our traditional Easter dinner and she's always in charge of bringing this salad! I've said it before, but I truly believe salads just taste better when someone else makes them - lucky us! I recommend using a footed glass bowl so all of the layers can be seen." - Laura Johnson, Coton Colors Founding Artist & CEO

    • Celery
