Sara's Salad

We have had several hot days already this summer. When it's hot, I usually don't feel like anything warm to eat. Salad is so quick and easy and really hits the spot on those hot summer days. This particular salad is perfect because it has bacon, peas, and cheese which makes for a great main dish salad.

Sara's Salad

1 head of iceberg lettuce
6 pieces of bacon
1/2 of a 10 oz. package of frozen peas
1/4 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/2 cup shredded swiss cheese
2/3 cup chopped green onion
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup miracle whip

Wash, drain, and dry lettuce. Cook and crumble bacon. Run hot water over peas. Layer lettuce pieces into bottom of a large bowl. Sprinkle sugar, salt, and pepper over lettuce. Add peas, cheese, onion, mayo, and miracle whip in layers.

Do NOT mix. Refrigerate overnight. Garnish with bacon. When you serve the salad make sure you scoop all the way to the bottom of the dish, so you get each layer.

I love this salad! We call it "overnight salad." We use celery and green peppers, but I really want to try the green onions and the swiss cheese!
