How to make a salad look different with ease? the easiest method is to produce a layered salad. You can obviously adapt it to your own tastes but it is simple but attractive. Adding pasta shells helps to build this into a full meal on its own. Add a dressing and you have a superb side dish that will accompany any main dish. This is a visually stunning example of something so simple. I always get the children involved to help with layers and which order they should be placed. However, a lot of the ham, pasta and cheese tends to go missing!! I wonder where?

A Layered Salad is a dish that looks amazing, is far more interesting than a boring thrown together salad and incredibly filling with the pasta.
