THE INGREDIENTS LIST:
For the Salad:
4 Cups.Of chopped iceberg or romaine lettuce
1 Cup.Of diced tomatoes
1 Cup.Of diced cucumber
1 Cup.Of diced bell peppers (any color)
1 Cup.Of frozen peas, thawed
1/2 Cup.Of diced red onion
1 Cup.Of shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 Cup.Of cooked and crumbled bacon (optional).
For the Dressing:
1 and 1/2 Cups.Of mayonnaise.
1 and 1/2 Tbsp.Of granulated sugar.
1 and 1/2 Tbsp.Of white vinegar.
1/4 Tsp.Of salt.
1/4 Tsp.Of black pepper.
Place a single layer of chopped lettuce in the bottom of a big glass serving dish or trifle bowl to get things started.
On top of the lettuce layer, scatter the chopped tomatoes in a uniform layer. To get a harmoniously balanced taste, check that the tomatoes are spread evenly throughout the dish. The next layer should consist of sliced cucumber, so add that. The salad is given a reviving crunch as a result of this.
On top of the layer of cucumbers scatter the bell peppers that have been diced. To make the salad more attractive to the eye, try using a variety of colors.
The sixth layer is the thawed frozen peas. They should be distributed uniformly throughout the bell pepper layer. The sixth layer should be the red onion that has been diced. It imparts a subtle sweetness similar to that of onion to the salad.
On top of the layer of red onion, spread an equal layer of shredded cheddar cheese. If you are going to use bacon, crumbled, cooked bacon should be sprinkled on top of the cheese before serving.
Mix the mayonnaise, sugar, vinegar, salt, and pepper in a separate bowl. Whisk the ingredients together until the sugar is completely dissolved and the dressing is smooth.
Pour the dressing over the top of the salad in a uniform layer, making sue that it coats all of the components of the salad.
Place the salad in the refrigerator for at least two hours, preferably overnight, covered with plastic wrap or a lid. This enables the tastes to come together more effectively.
Just before serving, scoop out individual portions of the salad using a big spoon or salad tongs, being careful to get all of the layers. Enjoy the delectable blend of tastes and textures in your 7-layer Salad best when it is chilled and served.
