Delores Tomasek 7 Layer Salad

Who can resist this luscious salad? Easy to make, beautiful presentation and tastes so good! Thank you Delores for bringing this salad to the Historical League meeting.

Although this recipe is not in Tastes & Treasures cookbook, there are many more delicious recipes for salad found in the book.

These can vary depending on what you like or have on hand.
1/2 lb. cooked crumpled bacon
1 head choppped lettuce 
1/2 cup chopped red onion
1 bag frozen peas 1 head chopped cauliflower
2 hard boiled eggs chopped

2 cups mayonnaise

2 tablespoons sugar 
1/2 cup sour cream or 1/2 cup yogurt
1 teaspoon Lawry's Seasoned Salt (adjust to taste)

Layer ingredients in a large flat bowl.  Spread mayonnaise over the top to seal edges. Sprinkle with sugar.  

You can vary the salad by substituting green onions for red, jack cheese for the Cheddar, add chopped broccoli, chopped celery, chopped cucumbers, etc.
Option: top with 1/2 cup shredded cheese.
