With a new baby in our midst we are trying to soak up as much cuddling time as we can so I thought it would be fun to share our family's favorite Christmas recipes! Enjoy!
We're going to a Christmas party this evening so I'm taking this salad. It's so yummy. Enjoy!
Prepare the following ingredients and layer in a large dish.
(I use a large rectangle Tupperware that way all layers are
spread out and everyone can get a taste of all the layers.)
1 head of lettuce washed and torn in small pieces
1 green pepper diced
1 1/2 cup diced onion
10 oz. bag frozen green peas (cooked, drained, and cooled)
Mix together 1 1/2 cups mayonnaise and 2 T. sugar
1 1/2 cups mild cheddar cheese
1 lb. bacon cooked and crumbled
(Sometimes I add some chopped raw broccoli and cauliflower in with the peas...making it more than a seven layer salad. That's o.k., though, I don't think anyone will count. *wink* )
Let it sit overnight. Drain before serving if necessary. Toss together lightly.
