This recipe has been in my family for at least 75 years.I remember my great-grandmother making this salad during the summer and serving it with BBQ chicken.It is so simple to make and has always been a comfort food for me.
- 6 cups shredded lettuce
- 2 cups small early june peas
- 1 medium red onion
- 3 hard-boiled eggs, chopped
- 6 slices crumbled fried bacon
- 2 medium tomatoes, chopped
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- salt and pepper
- Toss all ingredients together and enjoy!
- If you're making this ahead of time, add the tomatoes at the last minute to avoid a watery salad.
I loved the bacon and red onion in this recipe. It was very easy to make. I used frozen peas (thawed) and I also put the tomatoes in a colander after I cut them up to help drain off extra liquid.
This was really good, reminded me of a 7 layer salad, but this is easier. I make ahead, but left out the tomatoes, just chopped some up and added on our own, Did not add to salad bowl. My DH and I both agreed, the tomatoes were not needed, was so good without and he is a real tomato nut. Will be making this again and again. Thank you for sharing
YUM!!! I made a few adjustments because it just me eating salads in my house! I added a little cheese and brocolli because I needed to use them. I also left out the red onion because I don't like them raw. Thanks so much for a keeper!
