Seven Layer Salad Recipe


  • Lettuce torn into bite size pieces (Romaine, Iceberg, Red and/or layer with Spinach)
  • 1 cup celery thinly sliced
  • (1/2 cup mushrooms thinly sliced – if using spinach)
  • 1/2 cup red or green peppers thinly sliced (or not if you don’t like them – they DO add colour)
  • 1/4 cup green onion chopped (or use thinly sliced red onion for fantastic colour and crunch)
  • 10 slices of bacon – cooked crisp and chopped (you can use chopped ham instead – as you wish – if you wish to keep it meatless use sliced hard boiled egg, especially tasty with spinach)
  • 1-10 oz package of frozen peas (defrosted but not cooked)
  • 3/4 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups mayo (you all know by now that I love Hellamans light but you can use your fav.)
  • 2 tsp sugar
