A Simple Salad

This is a salad I learned to make as a young girl and still enjoy it to day. I have made this a slightly more grown up version of the original. I hope ya’ll will give it a try.



1 small head if curly green leaf lettuce or spinach

1/2 cup chopped sweet or red onion

1/2 cup chopped red pepper or hot peppers

1/2 cup shredded carrots

1 cup chopped celery

1 10 oz. package of thawed frozen green peas

1 cup Hellmans Light Mayonnaise

3 tbsp sugar

1/4 cup chopped fried bacon (fried crisp) or 1/4 cup bacon bits

1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

Put in order all of the above ingredients, starting with the lettuce and ending with the cheese.Put it all in a square storage container. Do Not Stir. Leave the salad in a tightly covered container for at least 8 hours or over night in the refrigerator. The salad will keep up to a week.


I hope ya’ll do try this salad play around with the ingredients and you can come up with some terrific combinations. I have even made it as a 7 Layer Taco salad.

See ya’ll soon.
