Seven Layer Salad

This is a VERY easy salad to make. As long as you have all the ingredients it can be thrown together rather quickly. This is the salad I usually take to family gatherings or holidays.

1 pound bacon
1 large head iceberg lettuce - rinsed, dried, and chopped
1 red onion, chopped
3 hard boiled eggs, chopped
1 (10 ounce) package frozen green peas, thawed
10 ounces shredded Cheddar cheese
1 1/4 cups mayonnaise
2 tablespoons white sugar
2/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Cook Bacon. Crumble and set aside.
In a large flat bowl, place the chopped lettuce and top with a layer of onion, peas, egg, shredded cheese,and bacon.
Prepare the dressing by whisking together the mayonnaise, sugar and Parmesan cheese. Drizzle over salad and refrigerate until chilled.
