In this video, Betty demonstrates how to make her delicious Green Pea salad with Drizzly Dressing. It looks and tastes super and goes with just about any meal!


Iceberg lettuce 4 Cup (64 tbs) , torn into salad size pieces
Chopped celery 1/2 Cup (8 tbs)
Chopped green pepper 1/2 Cup (8 tbs)
Sliced quartered purple onion 1/2 Cup (8 tbs) , making quarter circles of the slices
Frozen green peas 1 1/2 Cup (24 tbs) , unthawed
Mayonnaise 1 Cup (16 tbs) (Enough To Spread The Top Evenly)
Splenda/Sugar 1/2 Cup (8 tbs)
Shredded sharp cheddar cheese 1 Cup (16 tbs)
Bacon slices 4 , microwaved until hot and crisp


In a deep clear bowl, layer 4 cups of torn lettuce, then 1/2 cup chopped celery (spread evenly), then 1/2 cup chopped green pepper (spread evenly), then 1/2 cup sliced and quartered purple onion (spread evenly). Next, put a layer of frozen green peas (about 1 1/2 cups). Now, spread the layer of peas with enough mayonnaise to cover the top (about 3/4 cup to 1 cup). Sprinkle the mayonnaise evenly with 1/2 cup of Splenda (or sugar). Cover this layer evenly with 1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese. Right before serving, microwave 3 or 4 slices of bacon (preferably already partially cooked), until crisp. Crumble the bacon even over the top of the Cheddar cheese layer. Serve with bacon is still crisp. i think you will love the colors and textures of this salad--and, most of all, its taste!!!
