Who is making the Pea Salad???
It's really called Vegetable Salad, but we call it Pea Salad:
3 cups torn romaine
3 cups torn leaf lettuce
1 1/2 cups shredded Swiss Cheese (6 oz.)
4 hard boiled eggs, sliced
1/2 pound bacon, crisp-cooked, drained and crumbled (or use the bacon pieces from the store)
1 ten-ounce package of frozen peas, thawed
3/4 cup mayo or salad dressing ( I use light mayo)
2 tablespoons sliced green onion with tops
Place romaine in the bottom of dish, sprinkle with salt, pepper and sugar
Top with 1 cup of cheese. Layer eggs atop cheese, standing some slices on edge if desired. Sprinkle generously with salt. (The eggs look prettiest when standing on edge thru the glass container).
Next, layer in order half the bacon, the leaf lettuce, and the peas. Spread mayo over the top-sealing to the edge of the bowl. Garnish with remaining cheese, remaining bacon, and green onion.
Cover and chill over night. Serves 10-12 servings.
Do not substitute any of the lettuces or it will not taste right~ Enjoy!
