Another family classic from my aunt--this is a great and uncommon holiday dish that gets rave reviews. Perfect for potluck or other get-togethers, it's also one of those foods that tastes even better the next day, or the day after that (be sure to keep it refrigerated, of course!).

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Heat up the green peas in their liquid, then drain and let cool.
  2. In a long glass dish, layer lettuce, onions, green bell peppers, celery and peas in that order--taking care to sprinkle the sugar evenly over each layer of peas.
  3. (If you only end up with one layer of each item, that's fine, too--it just depends on the dish you use.) Cover top layer with the mayonnaise, then sprinkle on the bacon bits and shredded cheese.
  4. Cover with clingfilm and refrigerate overnight, then serve and enjoy!
