Friday Favourites – Layered Salad


This week I have another salad for you.  It is simply known as ‘Layered Salad’.  The original recipe was given to me by a friend about 25 years ago after I tasted it at a BBQ.


Iceberg lettuce
2 cups frozen peas
4 eggs
200g mushrooms
1 cup mayonnaise
Small tub natural yoghurt
2 rashers shortcut bacon

Wash and dry about 6 large lettuce leaves.
Cook peas and allow to cool.
Dice and dry-fry the bacon.
Hardboil the eggs.  Cool and mash finely.  (I use a mouli-grater)
Slice mushrooms.
Cut the tomato into wedges.

Use the lettuce  leaves to line a large salad bowl.  Layer the other ingredients inside the lettuce.
