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!
