Going On The To Do List

Seven Layer Salad

Shredded lettuce

1/2 C chopped celery

1/2 C chopped green bell pepper

1/2 C chopped green onions

1 can water chestnuts, drained

1 10 oz package frozen peas

About 1 C light mayonnaise

4-6 oz shredded cheese, your choice

8 strips bacon, cooked and chopped {I used thick cut, pepper bacon}

In a large, clear glass bowl, layer in this order:

Layer the lettuce half way up the side of the bowl. Layer on the celery, then the green peppers, then the onions, then the water chestnuts. For the peas, you can just run a little water over them in a strainer or colander to knock the chill off of them. Add the peas to the salad, then the layer of mayonnaise. I just used enough mayo to cove up the peas. Next add the cheese layer, then the bacon. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 8 hours.
