Grandma’s recipe, handed down.
In a large, clear glass bowl, layer ingredients in this order:
Layer the lettuce half way up the side of the bowl. On top of the lettuce, layer the celery, then the green peppers, then the onions, then the water chestnuts. For the peas, you can just run a little water over them in a strainer or colander to knock the chill off of them. Add the peas to the salad, then add the layer of mayonnaise. I just used enough mayo to cover up the peas.
Next add the cheese layer, then the bacon (see note below on the timing of adding the bacon). Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 8 hours.
* Nanny said that she doesn’t add the bacon to the top until she is ready to serve the salad. Also, she said that you can make this the day before serving it. We had it for leftovers the second day and some liked it even better!
Peppery watercress pairs beautifully with the sweetness of strawberries and earthy flavor of toasted hazelnuts. Served with a red wine vinaigrette.
A classic southwest salad made with kale for extra nutrition and topped with a homemade cumin ginger sage dressing.
I had never had fennel before, but when I tasted this salad I absolutely loved it and over the years I have changed the recipe to include Meyer lemons and truffle cheese. It’s really refreshing. The bitterness of the baby arugula with the tart lemon dressing and the salty Parmesan cheese makes it perfect.
