Day #25: A Recipe

We had this last night for dinner and it tasted awfully good.  It is called a seven layered salad or 24 hour salad.  You can change things up a bit with the recipe by exchanging the bacon for ham/turkey or the mayonnaise for dressing.  Whatever floats your boat with this recipe, it is fairly flexible for the most part.  Enjoy!

  Ingredients
  • 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

Preparation:

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.
