7 Layer Green Salad

My family loves this salad!  I have made this one for years and I often get asked to bring this to family gatherings.   The great thing about it is that I can make it the night before and it will be perfect for the next day.  This salad is 7 layers of yumminess!


1 small head of lettuce chopped into bite size pieces
1 cup celery
1/2 cup green onions, chopped and tossed with celery to make 1 layer.
2 cups frozen green peas, do not cook
6 hard boiled eggs diced.
1 lb. bacon fried and crumbled
2 cups grated cheddar cheese
2 cup mayonaise
2 Tbsp. sugar
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp. seasoning salt (I use Lawry's)

Mix dressing by combining ingredients.
Using a 9x13 pan, layer the salad as follows:
Celery and Green Onion
Frozen Peas
Hard boiled eggs
Make sure the dressing is spread over the salad so that it completely covers it and seals the edges.
Sprinkle the grated cheese on top.
Cover tightly with plastic wrap.
Refrigerate overnight.
