Twenty-Four Hour Salad Recipe
A layered green salad with green peas, celery, bell peppers, Cheddar cheese, and bacon sprinkled over all. For other variations, I have substituted or added some of my own favorite ingredients, such as: carrots, eggs, mushrooms, sprouts, and seeded cucumbers.
A dear friend shared her version of 24 hour salad with me. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
This pineapple and marshmallow salad uses a cooked egg yolk base into which fruit and whipped cream are folded. Allow 24 hours for it to chill before serving.
My mom used to make this salad when I was a kid, Thanks for bringing back such good memories. My children also love this.
Amazing salad with a creamy sour cream dressing.
I have used Romaine lettuce which is great if you are serving it the next day but does not really work as well as Iceberg lettuce especially if you want leftovers. Red or green bell peppers work well. Red onions are more tasty than the white. Do not thaw the peas. Just rinse them under hot water. The frozen peas keeps the salad cool and makes it easier to spread the dressing on top. MAYO: MAYO is of course delicious but very high calorie! 100% Miracle Whip does not taste great with this salad. Kraft MAYO with Olive Oil is a great substitute. I prefer to substitute the white sugar with splenda. Add a little bit of FF Skim Milk to thin out the dressing which makes it easier to spread. Use leftover bacon vs. canned bacon bits. If you put the bacon under the mayo, the bacon will soften otherwise, it looks great on top of the cheese. We have added sliced hard boiled eggs to the top of the salad for decoration and also added chopped hard boiled eggs as a layer both work well and add more protein to the dish.
Very good and I didn't even leave it 24hrs so I had to mix it up a bit. I added mushrooms. I will make this again!!! And I think this will be my Christmas salad.
