I am making a layered salad for us to enjoy with our Thanksgiving dinner and thought this is a perfect time to share this recipe with you again!

I shared my layered salad recipe once before, but I have tweaked the recipe a bit since then so I decided it was time to share it again. Previously I used fewer hard boiled eggs and less cheese, and my family has made it clear that they would like more of both of those things in their salad. I also said that the salad needs to sit overnight, and I no longer do that. This is my husband’s favourite salad and he wanted it one day so I made it and we ate it without letting it sit overnight…and we all liked it even more!

Prep time:
Total time:
Serves: 12
This layered salad is perfect for holiday dinners.
  • 6 cups chopped iceberg lettuce
  • 12 hard boiled eggs
  • 2 cups frozen peas
  • 1 package bacon
  • 2.5 cups grated cheddar cheese
  • 2.5 cups mayonnaise
  • 25 ml sugar
  • 2-3 green onions
  • salt
  • pepper
  • paprika
  1. Allow the frozen peas to thaw in a bowl. Set aside.
  2. Cook bacon crisp and then crumble or cut into bite size pieces. Allow to cool.
  3. Mix mayonnaise and sugar in a bowl.
  4. Chop the green onions as garnish.
  5. Layer the following:
  6. Half of the iceberg lettuce, followed by a sprinkling of salt and pepper
  7. Sliced hard boiled eggs; followed by a sprinkling of salt and pepper
  8. Peas
  9. Half of the iceberg lettuce, followed by a sprinkling of salt and pepper
  10. Bacon
  11. Grated cheddar cheese.
  12. Mayo and sugar mixture, spread evenly over salad.
  13. Top with chopped green onion and paprika.

As you will see, I did not have any green onions when I made the recipe this time, so I garnished with chives and paprika. This salad is so well received in my family. I love that it gets more greens into my children!
