7 Layer Salad

There are some recipes that are so quick, easy and 'traditional' that they've been made for years and years and everyone assumes that 'everyone' knows how to make them and doesn't think to submit them to community cookbooks anymore. Seven (7) Layer Salad would be one of those.

Without further adieu I give to you...

Seven Layer Salad

1 package or one head lettuce
1/2 - 10 oz. package of frozen baby peas
1 c mayonnaise (not miracle whip!!!)
1/2 c sour cream
2 T sugar or Splenda
1 T finely diced onion
1 T finely diced green pepper
1 c shredded cheddar cheese
3/4 c cooked and crumbled bacon
4-6 hard boiled eggs, sliced or diced

Place the lettuce in the bottom of a glass dish, approximately 10X8 or any size you like. You can even put it into a 9X13" size although it will be a very shallow salad that way. Mix the mayonnaise, sour cream and sugar in a bowl. Let this set while you sprinkle the lettuce with the onion and green pepper. Now spread the mayonnaise mixture over the lettuce and sprinkle with the frozen peas, cheddar cheese and crumbled bacon. Top with diced or sliced hard boiled egg.

Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours and if you have time, about 12 hours is optimal.
