That 70's Seven-Layer Salad

A classic, easy favorite. In the 70's this salad was so popular; no one minded how often we ate it!

While I prefer the "purist" version, highlighting peas, onion, and celery, feel free to add a short sprinkling-layer of chopped radish, hard boiled egg, halved cherry tomatoes, or other- all good!

1 large head iceberg lettuce, chopped or shredded

½ c. chopped green pepper

½ c. chopped celery

½ c. chopped green onion

1½ c. peas, unthawed frozen is fine

1½ c. mayonnaise (or ¾ c. mayo & ¾ c. plain yogurt)

1½ Tbsp. honey, whisked into mayo (optional)

8-10 slices bacon, crisply cooked and crumbled- of course optional, but very 70's & very tasty!

1½ c. grated cheddar cheese

Starting with the lettuce, layer the veggies one-by-one in a large bowl; use glass for a pretty presentation, since then you can see the layers from the side.

Spread the mayo-honey mixture evenly over the vegetables. Top with bacon and cheese.

Cover tightly, and refrigerate at least 8 hours, or overnight.

Toss all together just before serving. Enjoy!
