This seven layer salad is easy to prepare and looks beautiful, especially if you have it in a deep clear glass bowl that allows you to see all the goodies layered inside.
Whether you can see the 7 layers or not, it tastes just as good.
Seven Layer Salad
- 2 cups mayonnaise or Miracle Whip
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 head of lettuce, shredded
- 1 cup celery, diced
- 1/2 cup sweet red pepper, diced
- 4 hard-cooked eggs, chopped
- 10 ounces frozen green peas, uncooked
- 1 small sweet onion, diced
- 8 slices cooked bacon, crumbled
- 1/2 pound cheddar cheese, grated
Combine the mayonnaise and sugar. Mix and refrigerate it until you finish making the salad.
Layer the rest of the ingredients in the following order: a layer of lettuce on the bottom of the bowl, then
a layer of celery
a layer of sweet pepper
a layer of chopped eggs
a layer of peas
a layer of onions
a layer of crumbled bacon
Spread the mayonnaise/sugar mixture over the top of the salad like cake icing. Sprinkle grated cheese evenly over it all. Seal the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight (or for 8 to 12 hours before serving).
This salad looks beautiful served in a glass bowl so you can see the layers. Mix it all together just before serving.

This easy make ahead layered salad is great to serve at a buffet or pot luck. It also makes a delicious summer salad entree.
You can make it healthier by omitting the layer of bacon or replacing it with chopped cooked chicken breast.
