My all time most requested dish to bring to any family gathering is my layered salad. It’s actually my mother’s recipe, so I can’t take credit for it, but I do anyway! To keep the dish a little more keto friendly, I use Splenda in the dressing topping rather than sugar, but you are able to do it either way. You can also use alternate types of lettuce and cheese, or switch the peas out for avocados. There’s so many ways to enjoy this dish. I hope it makes your Thanksgiving dinner this year!

This layered salad is perfect for holiday dinners.
Ingredients
  • 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

Instructions
  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

  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!
