Recipe for Seven-Layer Salad

When the family gets together for Thanksgiving and Christmas, one of the things my wife makes is a seven-layer salad. It is always a hit and quickly consumed!

Following is how she makes it:

2 pkgs lettuce of your choice
½ cup bell pepper, finely chopped
½ cup celery, finely chopped
¼ cup green onion, finely chopped
16 oz. frozen green peas, thawed
1 cup mayonnaise
4 Tablespoons sugar
2 cups cheddar cheese, grated
1 cup real bacon bits

First, layer bottom of dish with lettuce. Then layer the following: bell pepper, celery, green onion, and peas. Next combine mayonnaise and sugar and spread over the top of salad, sealing the edges. 

For the final layers, sprinkle cheese and bacon over the top. Serves 8 to 10.


Update: I do not recommend putting sugar in your salad.

There are ways to adjust the recipe for a healthier version.
