Seven Layer Salad

This is a quick and easy summer salad that Mom used to make quite often and everyone in our family loves it! It can also easily be adapted with whatever veggies you have on hand.

Seven Layer Salad

1 pound bacon
1 large head of iceberg lettuce (rinsed, dried, chopped)
1 red or yellow onion, chopped
10 ounce pkg frozen green peas, thawed
10 ounces shredded cheddar cheese
5-6 boiled eggs, sliced
1 1/4 cups mayonnaise
2 TBSP white sugar
2/3 cup Parmesan cheese

Cook bacon until crisp and then crumble and set aside. Prepare the dressing by whisking together the mayo, sugar and Parmesan cheese.

In a large flat bowl (use a glass bowl or dish to show off the layers) layer the following:
chopped lettuce
chopped onion
thawed peas
sliced boiled eggs
crumbled bacon
mayo mixture
shredded cheddar cheese

Refrigerate until chilled. Can also use broccoli, cauliflower, carrots or other veggies to add to the layers.
