Instructions
 

  • In a trifle bowl, spread half of the chopped romaine lettuce. Squirt or drizzle some of the Ranch dressing over the lettuce, vary the amount according to taste, you can also skip the dressing to keep the salad fresh longer or if people like to have their own choice of dressing.
  • Sprinkle half of the chicken over the lettuce. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Continue layering half of each ingredient: the red bell pepper, bacon, avocados, tomatoes, cheese, and egg.
