The first time I made this was last week.  And then I used croutons because I was out of turkey bacon.  It was great!

You will need:

  • 1 head iceberg lettuce
  • 6 boiled eggs
  • 1 15oz can peas (I used kidney beans, and it worked well)
  • mayo
  • salt.pepper
  • 3-4 chopped green onions
  • shredded cheese, preferably of the cheddar variety
  • 4 strips turkey bacon
  • a deep 9X13 casserole dish

seven layer salad

Chop up the lettuce and make a thin layer on the bottom of the dish.  Slice two of the eggs and place them on top.  Sprinkle 1/3 of the can of peas (or beans) on that.  Blob some mayo and try to smear it around as much as possible (good luck with that part).  Remember not to do too much because this is the first of three layers.  Sprinkle with onion, salt, pepper, and cheese.  Tear the bacon up and add 1/3 of that.

Now, start over.  You’re going to make 3 layers of this.  Chill and voila!
