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.
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
