I had originally posted this salad on my old Wordpress Blog but somehow it never got reposted here....yes it would even work for Thanksgiving!  It is a lovely layered salad. I first had this many years ago during the 70's when it was made by Mary Slade at a church ladies meeting at Warwick Assemble of God Church which was in Newport News, Va.  It is simple to "make ahead" and put in the refrigerator overnight.  I had featured the  1970's Warwick Assembly of God Cookbook on another post on this blog HERE

You will need the following: 1 small head lettuce chopped or I prefer to use 2 kinds of lettuce, 1 cup chopped celery diced well, 1 pkg frozen mini uncooked green peas, 1 med red onion diced,  1 large chopped green pepper, 4-6 chopped hard boiled eggs, 2 cups mayo with 2 Tb sugar stirred through, 1 can drained chopped water chestnuts.............layer  the lettuce, celery, peas, onion, pepper and hard boiled eggs and water chestnuts in a casserole in multiple layers.   Spread the mayo mix on the very top and sprinkle with grated cheddar cheese and 1 bottle of bacon bits.
Refrigerate overnight.  This is a great leftover salad as well!

In this picture the salad is ready for the mayo mix and cheese and bacon bits!

Have a very wonderful Thanksgiving!

That salad looks delicious. It is really handy when it can be prepared a day ahead. That is a very pretty teapot trivet next to it.

I don't think I have ever made a layered salad, but love them when someone brings it to a potluck. Yummmmm!

Love seeing your Mr. Fox too.
