Summer is back and it’s salad time again. Here is my favourite one, very fresh and satisfying though:


• 1 head of romain lettuce, chopped
• 1 cup frozen peas
• 1/2 large red onion, finely diced
• 1 1/2 cups bacon bits
• 3 hard-boiled eggs
• 1 1/2 cups grated cheddar cheese
• 1 bunch green onions, diced
• Salad dressing (recipe below)

Chop one head of romaine lettuce. I then cut it into squares so that the pieces are a very friendly bite-size.
Begin your layers with the lettuce.
Then frozen peas.
Then finely diced red onions.
Then bacon. Lots and lots of bacon.
Then a diced hard-boiled egg.
Then grated cheddar cheese. Lots and lots of cheese.
Finally, top with green onions.
That sums up the seven layers and then we top with the dressing. Oooo, the dressing!

• 1 cup sour cream
• 1 cup mayonnaise
• 1/2 cup sugar
• 2 tablespoons vinegar
• Salt
• Pepper

Whisk ingredients together and pour 1/3 of dressing over the first seven layers of salad.
Repeat this for the next seven layers and dressing. And then once again – only for the last time, place the dressing on top of the red onions so the top can be gorgeous and cheesy. Allow to set long enough for the peas to defrost and the dressing to drizzle down into the salad.
You can play with the layers if you like, introducing new ingredients to your liking or remove the peas for the kid’s sake ;-) .

Goes along well with fresh white bread, baguettes etc.
