7 layer salad bars

I needed a quick baby shower food for today. I think a nestie recommended this recipe. Its from Pampered Chef originally. It was yummy and it is all gone! It did not last more than a few hours.

*I used both shredded cheddar cheese and parmesan cheese on my salad bars!

We call them Veggie Bars. Made with 1 pkg ranch dressing (not for dips), 1 c mayo, 1/2 c sr cream, and 8oz cream cheese. Then chop broccoli & cauliflower flowerettes real small and shred carrots and cheese mix together and add over "frosted" crescent roll sheet. Enjoy
