7 Layer Salad or Overnight Salad

Look so good! Too bad we never got to actually eat it!
I made this yesterday but it never made it to the table today. I gave it to my brother and asked that he put it in the spare fridge in the garage aka "man cave". I had my husband go get it for me today. He did not find it in the fridge though. My brother had FROZE it! He claims that I told him it went in the freezer. I think he's crazy and hearing things. LOL Good thing I took a photo yesterday.

6 cups chopped lettuce
salt and pepper
6 hard-cooked eggs, sliced
2 cups frozen peas, thawed
8 to 16 ounces bacon, crisp-cooked, drained, and crumbled
2 cups (8 ounces) shredded mild Cheddar cheese
1 cup mayonnaise
1 to 2 tablespoons sugar
1/4 cup sliced green onion with tops

Place the lettuce in bottom of large bowl; sprinkle with salt and pepper. Layer egg slices over lettuce in bowl and top with peas. Combine mayonnaise and sugar; spread over top, spreading to edge of bowl to cover. Top with shredded cheese and bacon, along with a light sprinkling of salt and pepper.

Cover and chill 24 hours or overnight.

Garnish with green onion and a little paprika.

Toss before serving. Serves 12 to 15.
