Betty's Layered Salad

This recipe came to us through our good friends mother-in-law. She is a talented artist and not surprising that this salad looks like a piece of art! The beauty of this salad is that it can be prepared ahead of time. Great for pot lucks and large group gatherings.


In a large clear glass bowl carefully and neatly layer the  vegetables in the following order:
6 cups Lettuce (variety of your choice)
1 cup thinly sliced radishes
1 cup thinly sliced celery
2 cups thinly sliced mushrooms
1 finely chopped red pepper
1 finely chopped green pepper
1 medium finely chopped purple onion
1 ½ cups frozen peas
4 hard boiled eggs (grated)
1 ½ cups grated cheddar cheese

1/2 Cup cooked crumbled bacon
Cherry tomatoes
1/4 Cup real grated parmesan cheese

1 cup of mayonnaise
2 Tbsp. white vinegar
2 Tbsp. granulated sugar


Combine dressing ingredients and pour over salad.
Chill salad for 4 or more hours before serving.
Prior to serving garnish with cherry tomatoes, cooked crumbled bacon and sprinkle with grated parmesan cheese.
Quantities may vary depending on the size of the bowl.
