Sock It To Me Seven Layer Salad

Sometimes, my family and I will make this salad for a Sunday afternoon supper. It’s a lighter option after eating a large Sunday meal for lunch. Plus, there is bacon like seriously all through this yummy salad. Bacon! Who can resist those salty little strips of pig fat? Not, I. So, yeah, seven layer salad is one of my family’s favorite things to eat and I anticipate that it will be yours as well. Give this yummy treat a try sometime soon 🙂

Let’s take a peek at what the folks over at Group Recipes have to say about it:

Hi, this is a great salad my husband makes it for pot lucks and when we have neighbor hood socials. this is a good one the only diffrence is he puts a little seasoning on top called salad delights from macormick but i think i like it better with out that part. thanks for posting seems like everyone likes it.

My husband and I both like this salad, too. I often make it when our church hosts a potluck meal.



1 head lettuce, shredded

1/2 cup celery, diced

1/2 cup red onion, shredded

8 Ounces peas, frozen

2 tablespoons Domino sugar

2 cups Kraft mayonnaise

4 ounces Sargento cheddar cheese, shredded

8 slices Hormel bacon, crumbled


Fry the bacon crisp, drain it and put on paper towel to remove as much grease as possible.

Shred the lettuce and spread in a layer on the bottom of a large salad bowl.

Add a layer of celery. Then a layer of red onion. Then a layer of frozen peas. Add the peas frozen, don’t thaw them.

Keep each layer separate, don’t mix together.

Mix the sugar and mayonnaise and spread in a layer on top of the peas.

Sprinkle the cheddar cheese over the mayonnaise layer.

Add the crumbled bacon on top.

Cover with food wrap or foil and refrigerate overnight.



Quick Tip: Serve this 7-layer salad as a side dish or an entree for a light lunch!
