Seven-Layer Salad

Course Salad, Side Dish


For the Salad

  • 4 cups chopped lettuce
  • 1 cup mushrooms, diced
  • 1 cup frozen peas, cooked according to package instructions
  • 1 cup shredded carrots
  • 2 hardboiled eggs, diced
  • 6 slices cooked bacon, crumbled
  • 2 green onions, sliced
  • 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese

For the Dressing

  • 1 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 tsp dill weed


  • Wash hands with soap and water.
  • Gently rub produce under cold running water just before cutting or shredding.
  • Place each salad ingredient in individual bowls.
  • Layer the ingredients, divided, in a large bowl (this works well in a glass bowl so the layers can be seen).
  • Start with about one cup of lettuce, followed by ⅓ cup mushrooms, peas, carrots, eggs, bacon, onion. Repeat the layers 3 times, ending with the last cup of lettuce on top.
  • To make the dressing, mix mayonnaise, lemon juice and dill weed in a small bowl.
  • Spread prepared dressing on top of the last layer of lettuce, sealing the edges of the salad.
  • Top with ¼ cup cheese and chill 2-24 hours.
