Layered Salad


A coworker brought in a layered salad the other day and it was so yummy I decided to make my own take on it. I bet most people's grandmas have a similar salad recipe so this is comfort food. My favorite part is how it gets less and less healthy as you work your way to the top! I will say that although it looked pretty in this trifle dish it probably needed a bigger bowl to serve it from. We ended up making it a tossed salad so that people could get everything. Enjoy!

Layered Salad

5-6 cups iceburg or romaine lettuce

1 green bell pepper (chopped)

1 can water chestnuts (chopped)

4 stalks celery (finely chopped)

16 oz. bag frozen peas

2 cups sharp cheddar

6 strips thick cut bacon (cooked and crumbled)


1.5 cups miracle whip

3 T. sugar

1/4 cup apple cider vinegar


In a small bowl mix dressing ingredients and set aside. 

In a trifle bowl or large glass bowl, layer lettuce, bell pepper, water chestnuts, celery, and frozen peas. Top with prepared dressing, cheese and bacon.
