seven layer salad

First layer – iceberg lettuce torn into pieces
Second layer – chopped onions
Third layer – chopped sweet peppers
Fourth layer – frozen peas
Fifth layer – shredded cheddar cheese
Sixth layer  – 1 cup of mayonnaise, mixed with two tablespoons of sugar
Seventh layer – bacon bits

Place the lettuce in the bottom of a clear salad bowl. On top of the lettuce, layer the onions, peppers and peas in that order. Spoon the mayonnaise mixture over the top to cover and seal the vegetables. Sprinkle the cheese and bacon bits on top. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 8 hours before serving.
