THIS RECIPE came from a cookbook compiled by the women of our church in my hometown of Chico, California. It's pretty and tasty. Best of all, it can be put together a couple of hours before serving. When it's time, a simple toss and it's ready. -Cathee Bethel, Philomath, Oregon


  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 6 cups mixed salad greens
  • 1 medium red onion, sliced
  • 1 package (10 ounces) frozen peas, thawed
  • 8 ounces sliced Swiss cheese, julienned
  • 1 pound bacon, cooked and crumbled


  1. In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, sugar, salt and pepper. In a large salad bowl, layer a third of the greens and a third of the mayonnaise mixture, onion, peas and cheese. Repeat the layers twice. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Just before serving, add the bacon and toss.
