lettuce, torn into small pieces
1 (10 ounce) package
frozen green peas, thawed
chopped green bell pepper
1 1/2 cups
small cauliflower florets
shredded Cheddar cheese
Good salad. Lettuce will stay firm if you use iceberg. I also used green onion instead of green pepper. This added a nice contrast to the sweetness of the dressing.
I rate recipes by asking myself if I would make them again and this one I would not make again.
After 12 hours in the fridge you end up with a pan of soggy lettuce and tasteless veggies.
I got this recipe from a friend years ago.Since then I have made it for family bbq's and friends dinners parties.Everyone loves it and marvels at how easy it is. I have changed my dressing slightly,I add 1/2 mircle whip salad dressing and 1/2 yogurt. It is much lighter and just as good.
Delicious AND easy! Great hit at a recent party! I did tweek the recipe a bit: used baby spinach leaves in addition to iceberg lettuce, green onion in place of green pepper, water chestnuts in place of cauliflower -- you really can use anything you want in the layers. My dressing did not "trickle down," but I simply tossed before serving. A DEFINITE KEEPER RECIPE!
We love salad and this one is great. I added a layer of water chesnuts and left out cauliflower and it was still wonderful. Very good for holiday dinners because you make the day before and store in the fridge which cuts out some of the work on the big cooking day.
Absolutely Delicious! Made it for a dinner party and the compliments kept coming long after the salad was gone. I added 3 chopped hard boiled eggs,cherry tomatoes and chopped roasted pecans.
I was not sure about the Mayo Dressing but thats what makes it so Wonderful.
Wonderful cold salad...went over very well at my office potluck. My husband even loved it and he's not a big salad eater. It took some time to cut up all the vegetables, but it wasn't difficult. I would use less peas. They kind of take over the flavor of the salad when there are too many. I will make it again!
Great salad. I will only add half the peas next time. I added tomatoes and next time will also put in some cucumber. I was pleasently surprised that I liked the mayo dressing. I added a little more sugar than what was called for. The bacon was one of the best parts of the whole thing.
