8 Layer Asian Salad {recipe}

Thanks to Pinterest, we had another yummy salad last week.
If you search "Asian Layered Salad" there are a whole BUNCH of recipes.  I looked through a few and decided to take the best parts of each and make my own. It's similar to my Asian Chicken Salad, which we love, but I thought having layers would make it fun, and having more vegetables is always  a good idea.
I started out with a bed of romaine lettuce {you could use red leaf or green leaf as well}. Topped that with shredded carrots {And by the way, just buy them shredded - unless you have a machine specifically for that purpose. I tried shredding them myself one time and it was awful!}
The next layer is thinly sliced red onion.
Layer #4 is sugar snap peas, trimmed and sliced on the diagonal.
Then comes a beautiful layer of red bell pepper, again, thinly sliced.
For the 6th layer I put in a BUNCH of mandarin oranges {I buy the big can because my kids LOVE THEM!}
Sprinkle a layer of almond slices.
I saved the 8th layer, chow mein noodles, to put on right before I served it.
Aren't the layers beautiful?
