My Favorite Salad: Seven Layer Salad Recipe

Seven Layer Salad

In some households this salad is known as 24 hour salad. My wife makes this frequently. It tastes fantastic. Great for family gatherings.


6 cups chopped lettuce
salt and pepper
6 hard-cooked eggs, sliced
2 cups frozen peas, thawed
8 to 16 ounces bacon, crisp-cooked, drained, and crumbled
2 cups (8 ounces) shredded mild Cheddar cheese
1 cup mayonnaise
1 to 2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 cup sliced green onion with tops


Place 3 cups of the lettuce in bottom of large bowl; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Layer egg slices over lettuce in bowl and sprinkle with more salt and pepper. Continue to layer vegetables in this order: peas, remaining lettuce, crumbled bacon, and shredded cheese, along with light sprinklings of salt and pepper. Combine mayonnaise and sugar; spread over top, spreading to edge of bowl to cover entire salad. Cover and chill 24 hours or overnight. Garnish with green onion and a little paprika. Toss before serving.

This salad serves 12 to 15.

I love this kind of salad. I haven’t made it in years, but you’ve inspired me to do so this week! (I’d just leave out the peas, since no one here likes them.) My sister was the first to introduce me to this salad. It is soooo good for something so easy! Thanks for posting it!
