Seven Layer Salad

Seven Layer Salad

Made  times

"I usually make this bacon, lettuce, onion, pea, cheese and cauliflower layered salad in a large flat bowl. There's never too much because everybody loves it! You can vary the salad by substituting green onions for red, jack cheese for the Cheddar, etc."

This is really good! I brought it as my dish to pass at a family gathering and got big raves - they went back for thirds! I'm not a big red onion fan so I used green onions instead, I like the t...
