Food Friday: Recipe for Seven-Layer Salad

Seven-Layer Salad


Use a glass dish (9×13) to layer the salad in, which allows you to see the layers.
It’s prettier that way!

Cut up lettuce (1/2 to 3/4 head, fairly small shreds.)
Cut up onions (1/2 cup)
Celery (cup up thin slices; depending on your love of celery: 1/2 cup to start)
4 hard-boiled eggs (chopped up)
3-4 slices bacon, (fried, then broken up and sprinkled over)
Frozen peas (not completely thawed)
Shredded cheddar cheese
Whipping cream, whipped

Layer the first 6 ingredients above (lettuce, onions, celery, eggs, bacon, peas) in 9×13 dish.

In another bowl combine 2 cups mayonnaise with 1/2 cup sugar (or less) and mix with 1/4-1/2 cup whipped cream.

Spread this mixture over top of layers.

Sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese on top of that.
Refrigerate overnight.

Obviously, this recipe is very flexible, and you can increase or decrease the quantities for your family and your liking!  It’s a great picnic or summer recipe, as it’s very refreshing, but it also goes great with chicken or a heavier meal in the winter.  Try it and I hope you will

  1. Legendswife,
    I think you're thinking of Southwestern Lasagna maybe. It uses tortillas, and similar ingredients to enchiladas, and cottage cheese. We love that recipe–had it again this past week–yum! Anyway, here's the link to it:
    Glad you're enjoying the recipes I share–blesses my heart to pass on good recipes and have others enjoy them! Let me know if that's the one you were looking for!

  2. Wendy, you post some of the most yummiest recipes. Speaking of awhile back I thought you had posted a recipe called Chicken Enchiladas? w/cottage cheese. I couldn't find it on your search so maybe it was a different blog, but if not could you repost it.(I made it by what I remembered last week. Its the third or fourth time I've made it. Its been a big hit with Legend). I would love to jot it down on a recipe card.
