Recipe: Layered Pea Salad

This delightful layered salad is filling and fresh at the same time. It is so versatile that it works for any time of the year--July 4th or Christmas. Its one of the better ways I get my kids to eat their peas

Layered Pea Salad Ingredients

  • 1 cup creamy salad dressing (such as Miracle Whip)

  • 2 tablespoons white sugar

  • 5 (15 ounce) cans baby peas, drained

  • cup finely chopped green bell pepper

  • 1 head iceberg lettuce, torn into bite-sized pieces

  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese

  • bacon bits

How to Make Layered Pea Salad

  1. Stir together salad dressing and sugar in a large salad bowl or 9x13 glass baking dish until sugar is dissolved. Add peas and chopped green pepper, if desired, and mix lightly to combine. Spread the pea mixture evenly across the bottom of the dish.

  2. Spread the lettuce in an even layer over the pea mixture, and top the lettuce with a layer of the Cheddar cheese. Sprinkle bacon bits over the cheese.

  3. Chill for at least 8 hours or overnight to blend flavors.

Layered Pea Salad Reviews

  • This was a very easy and quick salad to make I changed it up a little added diced onions and minced garlic to give it a little kick swaped out the miracle whip for ceasar dressing and opted for fresh spinache and romaine lettuce instead of iceberg I used freshly cooked bacon it was wonderfu;

  • This is similar to my mother-in-laws Seven Layer Salad. The lettuce would be on the bottom, followed by a layer of celery, green onions (or bell pepper) followed by a layer of frozen peas (much tastier than canned peas), layer of your favorite dressing (mayo, miracle whip or you could do ranch or caesar), shredded cheddar and bacon layers. When you use the frozen peas, it helps keep everything below the peas stay fresher longer and it can be made ahead by even a day with no problem. It was/is always one of my favorite salads.

  • My mom made this salad for years, and its a holiday favorite. So easy because you make it the day before.

  • I love the original version (I am the author); but, Stacy, your ceasar version sounds YUMMY I will try it Save it as a custom version so others will see it as well

  • I tried this recipe with the "canned peas." Not nearly as good as when made with frozen peas. The lettuce layers are not pretty either. Eye appeal is very important to me. Ill not make this again.

  • This is a great summer salad. Something cool when its hot outside and you just dont want anything hot to eat.

  • Awesome idea, got me to thinking of other directions I can go with salads, serve in a larger mason jar instead of bowls, would be fun mixing and eating the salad that you like. Great idea

  • Love the ease of making this the night before. Im with some of the other reviewers, frozen peas work better. Also, I added tomatoes and green onions, this recipe is awesome because of all the veggies you can add to it. Thanks

  • This was delicious and a hit at our family Christmas gathering. I used the canned peas and found it worked well. I think the canned allows for better blending of flavors. Recipes you can make ahead are great for me Loved it

  • I liked this. I only had fresh English peas I bought from Trader Joes which came in a 14oz bag. As a result, I made 1/4 of the recipe and layered the salad in 4 small glass dishes creating mini arranged salads. I cooked the peas in the microwave for 10 minutes in some salted water. I used regular mayo and sugar in the raw. I like something crunchy in my salad. I didnt have any croutons, but added some corn chips. This really did work well. ty

  • I made this with frozen peas. They are so much better. Also, I reduced the peas so that it was a solid layer of peas. 75 ounces of peas was too much in my opinion. I layered it with lettuce, green peppers, peas, Miracle Whip, cheese and then bacon on top. I thought it was as good as Ive eaten before.

  • I made it with frozen baby peas, omitted bell pepper, and used real bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled. I did not include bell pepper because not all in the group like it. I definitely would make it again because it went together very easily and everyone liked it
