These are two of my favorites, layered salad and cherry fluff, as I call it. The layered salad is an old recipe my mom has had for years and the cherry fluff is adapted from the Paula Deen recipe for Banana Split Salad...hence the name change, we do not use bananas.
1 bag mixed greens, spinach, lettuce or Romaine.
1 cup Miracle Whip
4-6 T sugar
Frozen Peas (thaw lightly in microwave and drain excess water)
Diced hardboiled eggs (approximately 3-4)
Crumbled bacon (as much or as little as desired)
About 2 cups grated cheddar cheese
1 medium diced red onion
Use a triffle dish or a large casserole dish. If using a triffle, you will want to create two separate layers of salad for a fancier look and more even flavor throughout. Mix sugar into Miracle Whip until slightly thinned out. Begin layering peas, celery, onions, carrots, eggs and bacon over salad. Top with half of the dressing mixture, and then half of the cheese. Repeat second layer exactly as the first. Refrigerate. Can be made a day in advance.
