Here's another family favorite Grandma graciously showed me how to make. It's on the complicated side for a salad (at least for someone who usually just sticks with plain-old lettuce), but it sure is good!
Grandma's 7-layer Salad
1 head lettuce
1 cup diced celery
4 hard-boiled eggs
1/2 green pepper, chopped
1/2 onion, diced
8 slices bacon
10 oz package frozen peas, slightly thawed
2 tablespoons sugar
1 cup miracle whip salad dressing
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup grated cheese
Chop lettuce, celery, pepper, onion, and eggs. Spread in a 9x13-inch cake pan. Cut up bacon and fry. Add peas and sugar to bacon as it cooks. Mix salad dressing and sour cream in a small bowl. Spread over top of chopped ingredients in the cake pan. Add bacon pieces and peas, distributing evenly over everything. Sprinkle cheese on top. Refrigerate 8-10 hours
Grandma always brings this dish for us to enjoy on Thanksgiving. It's a special treat!
