Salads are great accompaniments that can be served with the main course. A seven layer salad has all the ingredients placed in layers rather than tossing them completely. It tastes delicious and can be made easily in no time.

Recipe #1

Ingredients
  • 1 pound, bacon
  • 1 cup, cauliflower (chopped)
  • 1cup, mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons, white sugar
  • 1 red onion (chopped)
  • 1 iceberg lettuce (chopped)
  • 10 ounces, cheddar cheese (shredded)
  • ⅔ cup, Parmesan cheese (grated)
  • 1 packet, frozen green peas (thawed)
Preparation

First, place the bacon in a large skillet. Cook this over medium-high heat till the bacon browns evenly. Once done, crumble the pieces and set it aside. Then, take a large bowl and place the chopped lettuce in this. Add a layer of onions, bacon, cauliflower, and peas in layers. Place the shredded cheese on top. Take another bowl and mix the mayonnaise with the Parmesan cheese and sugar. Sprinkle this as another layer over the salad. Place this in the refrigerator till it gets chilled.

  • 6 cups, lettuce (chopped)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 cup, mayonnaise

  • 6 hard-boiled eggs
  • 2 cups frozen peas (thawed)
  • 2 cups, cheddar cheese (shredded)
  • 10 ounces, bacon (crisp-cooked, drained, and crumbled)
Preparation

Take a large bowl and place around 3 cups of lettuce at the bottom. Next, sprinkle with some salt and pepper. Once done, layer the egg slices over the lettuce. Once again, sprinkle with some salt and pepper. Add the remaining lettuce, peas, bacon, and the shredded cheese on top. Spread some mayonnaise and sugar on the topmost layer. Ensure it covers the entire salad. Once done, cover the bowl with a plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for 24 hours. While serving, use some green onion and paprika as garnish.
