|Easy, do-ahead, take-along 7-layer Salad|
- 1 head iceberg lettuce
- 1 TBS mayonnaise
- 1 tsp sugar
- 1 box frozen tiny peas
- 1/4 lb bacon, cooked and crumbled
- 1 red onion, thinly sliced into rings
- 1/2 lb Swiss cheese sliced paper thin
Layer the salad in the order given, overlapping the lettuce slightly. Smear 1/3 of the mayo over the lettuce, it won't cover the lettuce completely, just a small smear here and there. Sprinkle with 1/3 of sugar.
Scatter 1/3 of frozen peas all over, then 1/3 of the bacon, followed by a thin layer of onions. Then a layer of cheese.
Repeat two more times, ending with the cheese. Press down on the layers if they threaten to overflow. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside until ready to serve, for up to four hours at room temperature, longer in the fridge. Cut into squares and serve. Don't let the simple ingredients fool you, this is deliciously light and addictive. Give it a try!
