Seven Layer Salad Recipe

Note: The name in the family recipe book is "Seven Layer Salad." Don't ask me why? It really isn't seven layers, but it has become my favorite. (BC)

Step 1

Using a fairly deep baking dish (I use a 4" deep 9" X 9" pyrex pan), place a bed of chopped lettuce on the bottom, then lay down a layer of celery, then onion, then green peppersm then peas, then eggs. The order is really not that important, and they will nor really constitute a solid "layer."

Step 2

Then and another layer of lettuce and repeat the procedure.

Step 3

Mix mayonaise and sugar together and spread on top.

Step 4

Sprinkle bacon and cheddar cheese on top of the whole thing.

Step 5

Cover tightly and leave overnight in refrigerator, allowing mayonaise to permeate the whole thing.
