7 Layered Salad

How was your weekend?! Our was great, especially since my brother, his wife, and our brand-new 1 month old nephew is visiting Canada for the first time. He is just perfect in every way.

So food. Again, this is one of my all-time favorites.  My mom made this growing up, usually for potlucks, or when we had people over for dinner. I could never get enough, and I still cant! It's fresh, and DELICIOUS! But, in the words of my cousin Kenzie, "bacon makes everything taste better."

  • Shredded Iceberg lettuce (about half a head)
  • 1/2 cup celery, chopped
  • 1/2 cup green onions, chopped (3-4 of them)
  • 1 green pepper, diced
  • 1-2 cups of frozen peas (enough to cover the other ingredients)
  • 1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese, grated
  • 8 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1/2 cup sour cream AND 1 cup mayo mixed up

Layer these ingredients in this order in a large bowl, as evenly as possible. Then spread the creamy mayonnaise mixture on top to seal all the ingredients. Cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate overnight, or as long as possible. When you serve it, dig deep so you can get all the layers (although the topping is the best).
