A family favorite recipe! My Mom's 7 Layer Salad is perfect for a get together for a fresh and crisp side dish!
Place chopped lettuce in a 9x13 pan.
Cook bacon in skillet and allow to cool.
Chop all remaining vegetables and layer on top of lettuce in this order- celery, pepper, onion and peas.
Spread mayonnaise on top of vegetables and sprinkle with sugar.
Add shredded cheese and top with crumbled bacon.
Mom says you MUST cover with aluminum foil and refrigerate overnight. (If you don't have that much time 1-2 hours is sufficient)
My Mom's recipe calls for 2 Tablespoons of sugar, I personally don't think it needs that much but you can add an additional tablespoon if you'd like.
The seven layers is vegetables... I didn't count the mayo and sugar :)
