Layered Salad

This delicious salad almost always makes an appearance at our family gatherings and holiday dinners. It's a hearty and great-tasting salad, also nice for a potluck dinner.


  • 6 cups chopped lettuce
  • salt and pepper
  • 6 hard-cooked eggs, sliced
  • 2 cups frozen peas, thawed
  • 8 to 16 ounces bacon, crisp-cooked, drained, and crumbled
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded mild Cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onion with tops
  • paprika


Place 3 cups of the lettuce in bottom of large bowl; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Layer egg slices over lettuce in bowl and sprinkle with more salt and pepper. Continue to layer vegetables in this order: peas, remaining lettuce, crumbled bacon, and shredded cheese, along with light sprinklings of salt and pepper. Combine mayonnaise and sugar; spread over top, spreading to edge of bowl to cover entire salad. Cover and chill 24 hours or overnight. Garnish with green onion and a little paprika. Toss before serving.
This salad serves 12 to 15.

7 layer salad, Member joyrt1958

Loved it!! I use equal parts (1 cup) frozen thawed peas, finely chopped celery and bell pepper. Instead of sugar I use 3 pkgs. of Splenda, it makes the mayo stay brighter.My layers are lettuce, celery, bellpepper, peas, eggs,mayo--cover and chill for 24 hours. Bacon and cheese added right before serving on top to maintain quality.
