This is the best 7 layer salad recipe. Keep it where you will find it easily when the craving hits for a layered crunchy creamy bacon and cheese salad is all you can think about (it will happen).
EASY SEVEN LAYER SALAD
1 medium head of lettuce, cleaned and chopped
1/2 cup finely chopped celery
1 small pkg of frozen sweet peas
2 cups homemade mayonnaise or 1 cup Miracle Whip and 1 cup Mayo
1 tsp white granulated sugar
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
12 strips bacon, fried and crumbled (use a rolling pin)
snipped green onion tops (garnish)
Cook the frozen peas in boiling water for 30 seconds - do not overcook. If they are thawed do not cook. Drain and set aside.
In a 9x13 pan you will create layers of vegetables. The first layer is lettuce. You don't want a huge amount because the salad will be dry. Next layer celery and finally the peas.
In a small bowl mix the mayo (1 cup) and Miracle Whip (1 cup) together and add 3 tablespoons milk; combine well until smooth and creamy. If it is too thick, add more milk.
Pour over the vegetables and spread out to seal the sides with the mayo mixture. Sprinkle the sugar over the mayo mixture. Next add the cheese and finally the bacon on top of that. Chill well before serving.
