1. Prepare the Creamy Parsley Dressing: Combine the mayonnaise, yogurt, parsley, chives and pepper in a small bowl until well blended. Taste the dressing and adjust the seasonings, if necessary.
2. Assemble the Salad: Place the lettuce in a 4-quart glass or crystal bowl. Arrange the red pepper and carrots vertically against the side of the bowl. Arrange the green onions and peas around the outer edges of the bowl. Spread the dressing over the top. Arrange the bacon and the cheese over the dressing. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate the salad until serving time, up to 1 day.
3. To serve: Present the salad to the diners. Transfer the salad to a large, clean dish pan or roasting pan. Gently toss the salad so all the ingredients are well coated with the dressing.
