Seven Layer Salad

Ingredients

  • 1 medium head of lettuce
  • 1 cup celery, diced
  • 4 hard-boiled eggs, sliced
  • 10 oz. frozen peas, uncooked
  • 1/2 cup green peppers, sliced
  • 1 medium sweet onion, sliced thin
  • 1 1/2 cups mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp. sugar
  • 4 oz cheddar cheese, grated
  • 8 slices bacon, fried and crumbled
  • parsley

Directions

Tear lettuce into bite-sized pieces and place in a large bowl or 9" x 13" glass dish. Layer celery on top, then eggs, peas (separated), peppers, and onion. In a separate bowl, combine mayonnaise and sugar. Spread over the salad. Sprinkle with cheese. Cover and refrigerate 8 to 12 hours. (Seal tightly and salad will keep for a week.) Sprinkle with crumbled bacon and parsley before serving. Serve it layered as prepared, or toss the salad.

Yield: about 18 servings.
