Layered Salad

A Christmas favourite but good any time of the year. A shallow dish works best and you might want to have some dressing on the side.


  • 1 head romaine lettuce (or other greens), cut into bite size pieces
  • 1 bunch of spinach (or other greens), cut into bite size pieces
  • 1 small package frozen peas
  • 1 bunch green onion, chopped
  • 8 – 10 slices of crisp bacon, crumbled (save some for garnish)
  • 5 hard boiled eggs, peeled and sliced OR finely chopped and sprinkled
  • 1 1/2 – 2 c mayonnaise ( I use 1/2 mayo and 1/2 sour cream to cut the richness, plain yogurt instead of sour cream would be good too)
  • Shredded cheddar cheese for garnish (optional)


  • In a shallow dish (13″ x 9″ pyrex works good) layer in:
  • greens
  • peas
  • egg slices or chopped
  • bacon
  • Seal the top completely (no air gaps) with mayo combo
  • Refrigerate up to 24 hrs in advance of serving
  • Sprinkle some bacon on top, shredded cheddar for garnish before serving.
