This has been a hit at pot lucks, bbq’s and summer camping as a light side dish or lunch.

  • head of lettuce, torn into small pieces
  • 1 10 oz. package frozen green peas, thawed
  • 1 medium chopped green pepper
  • 4 -5 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled

Place bacon in a large, deep skillet if using uncooked. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown. Drain and set aside. In a 9×13 inch pan layer the lettuce followed by the peas, green pepper, crumbled bacon, cauliflower and celery. In a small bowl combine the mayonnaise and the sugar. Spread mixture over salad. Sprinkle cheese over top. Cover and chill in the fridge or cooler for at least 8 to 12 hours before serving.
