7 Layer Salad

This is a great salad for a potluck or BBQ Cookout. Easy to make and I never have leftovers!


  • 2 heads of lettuce
  • 1 can of baby peas, drained
  • 4 oz. shredded cheese (cheddar, Colby, or Colby jack)
  • 1 lb. bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
  • 1/2 of a red onion (can substitute Vidalia)
  • 3 - 4 Tbsp. Miracle Whip


Assemble the night before serving and store in the refrigerator. In a large bowl, layer the ingredients in the following pattern:

  • Entire can of drained peas
  • 1/3 of the lettuce, torn in bite sized pieces
  • 4 oz. shredded cheese
  • Another 1/3 of lettuce, torn in bite sized pieces
  • Sprinkle the crumbled bacon next
  • The last 1/3 of the torn lettuce
  • Chop 1/2 of the red onion and sprinkle on top

Dollop the 3 - 4 tablespoons of Miracle Whip in the center on top. Cover well with plastic wrap. Refrigerate overnight. Toss just before serving.

This is a regularly requested item at many family gatherings. I've taken this to work potlucks, family reunions, picnics, and even made it for several of my sister-in-law's bridal showers and baby showers! I'm always asked for the recipe and it always goes fast!
