Seven Layer Salad

This recipe came from Mom's (Ada Ruth) oldest sister, Valeria Blake. In the spring of 1974 I took Mon and Dad back to Missouri to visit friends and family. We stayed at Uncle Tony and Aunt' Sis's cabin on the Mermac River. Aunt Sis decided to have a mini pot luck gathering and she made this salad. It was the first time I had tasted a salad like this and immediately fell in love with it. You can make all kinds of substitutions for the vegetables, adding and subtracting what you like best.

Seven Layer Salad

1 head of lettuce finely chopped
1 package of frozen peas
1 cup celery, chopped
1/4 cup green pepper, chopped
1/4 green onion, chopped

Layer in order in a 9X13 pan or salad bowl

Mix together:
1 pint Best Foods Mayonaise
1-2 Tablespoons sugar

Spread evenly over vegetables, making a smooth frosting

1/2 cup cheese, grated
8 slices of bacon, crisp -crumbled
