Multi-layered salad

Yield: 1 servings

Measure Ingredient
\N \N This started out as the 7 layer salad that it so popular. I have
\N \N Adapted it so much, that this is the end result. I think it is much
\N \N Better than the original.
1 each Head lettuce, broken into bite sized pieces
1 bunch Celery, diced
2 eaches Green peppers, diced (or combo of red, yellow, orange and green)
2 bunches Green onions, chopped
2 bunches Radishes, sliced crossways
\N \N 2-3 medium carrots, grated
\N \N 3-5 cups fresh bean sprouts, rinsed, drained and chopped
4 cups Frozen green peas, thawed, but not cooked
2 cups Fresh mushrooms, sliced
1 pounds Bacon, diced, cooked until almost crisp, drained and cooled
\N \N 3-5 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese

\N \N %%%%% DRESSING %%%%%
\N \N %%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
2 cups Mayonnaise
1 cup Sour cream
⅓ cup White vinegar
\N \N 2-3 tbsp white sugar
½ teaspoon Paprika
½ teaspoon Garlic powder

In large glass, or see through container (I use the big tupperware cake server) layer all the ingredients in whatever order you like.

Try to make sure that you have a different color for each layer, and that no two similar colored layers are close to each other. Top with the bacon, then the cheese. Mix the dressing together and pour over the whole top of the salad. Do NOT mix into salad. Cover and let chill in fridge for at least 8 hours or overnight. ** This is a fantastic salad for parties or buffets. You can make it in the morning or the night before as it has to sit for a while. If you make double the amount, pat ingredients dry with paper towel before layering as water from them being washed tends to drain to the bottom and the lettuce gets 'soggy'. You will get raves for making and bringing this one! It doesn't usually last very long at my place.

It makes goodlunches and great snacks for after school. Origin: Sharon Stevens. (I got the idea from the original 7 layered salad I had at a buffet, but have adapted it som much since then, I figure this version is mine now! 8-} Shared by: Sharon Stevens, Jan/95.
