7 Layer Overnight Salad

I love this salad because I can make it the night before a family gathering or large barbecue. There are many variations of this salad, but this is mine. I hope you try it this summer. Absolutely every ingredient may be substituted. I often use spinach instead of romaine, muschrooms instead of water chestnuts, celery for carrots, etc. Well, you get the picture. One never goes wrong so use your imagination and make it as colorful as you can.

Layer in a glass bowl:

1 medium head of romaine lettuce shredded
1/2 cup thin sliced onion
1 cup thin sliced celery
1 can drained water chestnuts sliced
1 10 ounce bag frozen tiny tender peas
4 to 5 hard boiled eggs

Mix the following ingredients and spread over the top of the assembled layers:

2 cups mayonnise
2 tsp sugar
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
1 tsp seasoned salt

Chill overnight

Sprinkle with 2 hard cooked eggs grated, 5 slices crisp bacon crumbled, tomatoes cut in wedges or cherry tomatoes cut in half and scattered on top. Sprinkle with cheese and parsley.
