Another hot favorite in our home is the seven layer salad recipe which again comes under the category of easy recipes. It is great for barbecues and potluck dinners.

If you’d like to try out this salad recipe place some lettuce leaves at the bottom of the bowl for the first layer followed by green peas for the second. Next, comes a layer of onion chopped fine followed by diced hard boiled eggs and some grated Cheddar cheese. Then some diced tomatoes and finally some mayonnaise for the top layer. Refrigerate and toss it before serving. Now, won’t this be one of your easy recipes? You can replace some layers with mushrooms, ham, bacon, boiled prawns or chick peas; the choice is yours, let your imagination run wild.
If you are looking for a mixed fruit salad recipe, you can use grapefruit, bananas, oranges, pineapple, and apples. In case any of these fruits are unavailable, you can use canned ones or simply replace with some other fruit that is available. The juice from the canned fruit can serve as a fruit salad dressing. You can either mix all the diced fruit with the salad dressing or just pour it on the top while serving. There are plenty of easy recipes on the Net that you can choose from for fruit salads.
If you are looking for more easy recipes, the Russian fruit salad recipe tells you to peel, pit and slice peaches and pineapples and add them to some raspberries, strawberries, and apricots. Put together a pound of sugar, a cup of water, juice from two oranges and two lemons, a half teaspoon of cinnamon powder, some grated lemon rind, a cup of rum and a cup of red wine and boil it for some five minutes. Pour it over the fruit mixture and serve cold. You can keep it on ice so that it chills faster.
