"This delightful layered salad is filling and fresh at the same time. It is so versatile that it works for any time of the year--July 4th or Christmas. It's one of the better ways I get my kids to 'eat their peas'! " — jkturnage

creamy salad dressing (such as Miracle Whip®)
5 (15 ounce) cans
baby peas, drained
finely chopped green bell pepper
iceberg lettuce, torn into bite-sized pieces
shredded Cheddar cheese
This was a very easy and quick salad to make I changed it up a little added diced onions and minced garlic to give it a little kick swaped out the miracle whip for ceasar dressing and opted for fresh spinache and romaine lettuce instead of iceberg I used freshly cooked bacon it was wonderfu;
I tried this recipe with the "canned peas." Not nearly as good as when made with frozen peas. The lettuce layers are not pretty either. Eye appeal is very important to me. I'll not make this again.
My mom made this salad for years, and its a holiday favorite. So easy because you make it the day before.
This is similar to my mother-in-law's Seven Layer Salad. The lettuce would be on the bottom, followed by a layer of celery, green onions (or bell pepper) followed by a layer of frozen peas (much tastier than canned peas), layer of your favorite dressing (mayo, miracle whip or you could do ranch or caesar), shredded cheddar and bacon bits..seven layers. When you use the frozen peas, it helps keep everything below the peas stay fresher longer and it can be made ahead by even a day with no problem. It was/is always one of my favorite salads.
I love the original version (I am the author); but, Stacy, your ceasar version sounds YUMMY! I will try it! Save it as a custom version so others will see it as well!
This is a great summer salad. Something cool when it's hot outside and you just don't want anything hot to eat.
Awesome idea, got me to thinking of other directions I can go with salads, serve in a larger mason jar instead of bowls, would be fun mixing and eating the salad that you like. Great idea!
Love the ease of making this the night before. I'm with some of the other reviewers, frozen peas work better. Also, I added tomatoes and green onions, this recipe is awesome because of all the veggies you can add to it. Thanks!
