7 Layer Salad - A great summer treat!

                                                     7 Layer Salad

   This is a favorite of my husband's. I haven't made this in years and when my sister was having a cook out I knew this would be the perfect thing to make. As far as a summer salad goes this is such an easy one and you can always change out the layers to suit your tastes. Simple ingredients, simple instructions and delicious. What more could you ask for? 

2 cups of mayo (I used light)
1 package of frozen peas
1 bag of shredded lettuce
1 large onion
1 bag of Bacon bits
1 bag of shredded cheese
2 large bell peppers ( I used red and yellow for color)
1/4 cup of sugar


In a separate bowl mix the 2 cups of mayo with the 1/4 cup sugar. Place in refrigerator until later

Boil peas until they float, drain them and wait until they are mostly dry.

While peas are boiling cut up the onion and the bell pepper.

This is where you will start your layers, I used a foil pan so that I could throw it away.

Take your mayo and sugar mix and spread it evenly on the bottom.

Next layer your peas, peppers and onions

Then your  lettuce, cheese and then bacon bits on top! 

                                           Refrigerate until ready to serve!
