  1. Spread the lettuce out on a large serving dish or bowl. Sprinkle the onion, celery, water chestnuts and frozen peas (unthawed) over the lettuce in layers. Spread mayonnaise over the top like a frosting. Sprinkle with sugar and grated cheese. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  2. Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble and set aside.
  3. Before serving, sprinkle crumbled bacon over the top, and garnish with tomato wedges, slices of hard-cooked egg, and parsley.

This is the same recipe that my mom and I use for special occasions. We use grated cheddar cheese and for the seasonings that somone missed in the previous review, we mix an envelope of Hidden Valley Ranch dressing mix with 1 Cup Mayonaisse and 1 Cup Sour Cream. It makes all the difference in flavor. This is really a great salad!



This salad is great, EXCEPT, there is no seasoning whatsoever. If it had salt and pepper, lemon pepper, seasoned salt or something it would REALLY be outstanding. It was good but rather blah. Seemed like something small but important was missing.



I made this for a graduation party and it was a BIG hit... I did make a layer of hard boiled eggs instead of just a few on the top. I did not use use the onion just b/c I am not a fan. Great salad and so easy to make.
