Seven Layer Vegetable Salad

In preparing salad one thing is to be kept in mind regarding quantities of its ingredients. In fact there is no hard and fast rule about it. All the ingredients are to be used to taste and to nutritional requirements. So here no quantities are fixed, you can take as much quantities as you desire.

·         Cauliflower florets
·         Frozen green peas, thawed
·         Head lettuce, torn into small pieces
·         Chopped green bell pepper
·         Chopped celery
·         Mayonnaise
·         Shredded cheddar cheese
·         Slices bacon
·         White sugar
       Put bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain and set aside. Take a bowl and layer the lettuce followed by the peas, green pepper, bacon, cauliflower and celery. Take another bowl and combine the mayonnaise and the sugar. Spread mixture over salad. Sprinkle cheese over top. Cover and chill for at least 8 to 12 hours before serving. You may also use boiled eggs for garnishing.
