Mimi's Layerd Salad

VERY EASY! This salad is a great compliment to a meal or a meal by itself.
Layered Salad

1 head lettuce, chopped
1 small red onion, chopped
1 small package of frozen English Peas, uncooked
1/2 cucumber, quartered
1/2 pint cherry or grape tomatoes, quartered
1 small can sliced water chestnuts, drained
1 to 1.5 cups mayo
1/2 cup shredded cheese, your choice
3 to 4 hard boiled eggs, sliced
6 to 8 slices bacon, fried crisp & crumbled
2 or 3 green onions (scallions) chopped

In a large bowl, layer ingredients as listed. When you come to the mayo layer, spread it out to the edges of the bowl. Allow salad to chill in the fridge for about 30 minutes before serving.

Other optional toppings include:
Chopped ham, turkey, or pepperoni
Sunflower seeds
Sun dried tomatoes
Black Olives
Sliced mild banana pepper rings
Chopped bell pepper
Sliced carrots

You can also omit the mayo layer and add your own favorite dressing at serving time.
