Prep: 15 min, plus refrigeration time.
1/4 head iceberg lettuce, washed
1/2 cup bottled real bacon pieces
1/2 medium green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1/2 small onion, chopped
5 ounces frozen peas, thawed
2 celery ribs, chopped
1 carrot, peeled and shredded
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
3/4 cup mayonnaise type salad dressing
2 Tbs. sugar
1/2 cup croutons
Prepare day before serving. Arrange lettuce in the bottom of a deep baking dish or plastic container with a cover. Sprinkle with bacon pieces. Layer with remaining vegetables and sprinkle with cheese. Combine salad dressing and sugar in a bowl. Spread over top of salad so it is air tight. Cover and refrigerate until serving time. Just before serving, toss and add croutons, if desired.
