Layered Salad

Anytime you can add a little spice to a regular old salad I'm all for it.  I love casserole, so this is kind of my casserole salad recipe.  :)

1 Head iceberg lettuce shredded
1 1/2 C. diced carrots
1 1/2 C. diced celery
1 C. diced red onion
1 pkg. frozen peas (Do not thaw)
2 1/2 C. mayonnaise
2 C. grated sharp Cheddar cheese
1 1/2 C. diced Tomatoes
1 C. cooked bacon chopped
10 hard-boiled eggs chopped
2 Tbs. sugar

Place shredded lettuce on bottom of bowl.  Layer with eggs, bacon, celery, tomatoes, onions, and frozen peas.  Cover peas completely with mayonnaise.  Sprinkle with sugar and cheese.  Repeat.  Cover tightly and refrigerate for 6 hours.  Do not mix.

I like to do mine in a clear glass container so you can see all the layers.  It turns out really yummy, cold, and crispy!  And it's a new little twist on the plain old salad.  :)
