This salad I find simple to put together with the least amount of stress and easy to transport to picnics, boats, beach, or out door concerts. Perfect for a summer outing with friends and family.
Seven Layer Salad
(courtesy of Penzys)
1 small head of lettuce, your favorite
1 cucumber, sliced
2-3 tomatoes, diced
1 small can sliced water chestnuts
12 oz. frozen peas (thawed)
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 lb. bacon
Buttermilk or ranch dressing
Remove peas form freezer and place in a bowl to thaw. Fry bacon until crisp. Drain on paper towels. When cool, crumb and set aside. Core and chop lettuce in bit size pieces. Layer all ingredients in a clear, staring sided bowl. Start with the lettuce and end with the bacon. Serve with dressing on the side. Serves 8
For vegetarian version, omit bacon and end with cheese.
