Layered salads are very popular among members of my family, so I always try to find some new options to serve at a family dinner. It will definitely have a special place at your festive table being nutritious and tasty at same time. Oh, fun fact: I found the recipe under the name “Glade of mushrooms”, tried it and became a fan from the first bite. You see how that name matches salad exterior perfectly!  The key to a tasty layered salad is not to overuse mayonnaise.

Moreover, to have the salad perfect, be careful with removing the bowl/pot off the salad when you have already placed it upside down. I mentioned in ingredients that you could use salt and pepper to your taste. The decision on these two is up to you. I do not like to add extra salt to the salad where I already have pickled ingredients and, especially, mayo.
