This wonderful, tasty salad is made up and refrigerated the day before so you can enjoy all the wonderful flavors the next day when you mix it up!  I make this every year for both Thanksgiving and Easter.  Old favorite!


  • 1 head lettuce
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup green pepper (I never use this)
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 10oz. pckg. frozen peas
  • 2 cups mayonnaise
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese
  • 10 slices bacon, crumbled or packaged bacon bits


Layer as given and refrigerate to 24 hours.  Toss before serving. Tips: when spreading the mayo on the peas, use a spatula, or better yet, use squeeze mayo.  I personally prefer the taste of fresh cooked bacon to bacon bits so I do it in the microwave a few slices at a time.  Also, if you have a few onion haters, you may want to do what I do and make one salad with and one without.  Enjoy!

  1. I certainly did NOT know you had a cooking blog! Good for you. Looks like a great recipe! I've made this before, everyone loves, but I've never had a "go-to" recipe. The search is off! I found it!
