Seven Layer Salad with Bacon and Peas for #SundaySupper

Seven Layer Salad for Sunday Supper by The Hungry Goddess

Steamed blue claw crabs. Hot corn on the cob with thick-sliced Jersey tomatoes slathered with mayo. Boardwalk fries and pizza. Anything and everything grilled and paired with fresh grown veggies right out of the garden. Our Sunday Supper theme this week is Nostalgic Summer Recipes and while I am dreaming of crabs and Jersey tomatoes, the first “recipe” that came to mind was the Seven Layer Salad.

The Seven Layer Salad of my childhood consisted of the following layers: iceberg lettuce, celery, onions, hard-boiled eggs, frozen peas, mayo with a bit of sugar added, grated Parmesan cheese, and crumbled bacon. Served ice cold and snuggled up nicely with a cheeseburger right off the grill. Good memories, but I had the urge to update it and, frankly, I am not excited by frozen peas.

What DOES excite me though are edamame … and a quick lemon garlic aioli instead of mayo and sugar … and blue cheese. Right? Blue cheese always excites me, so let’s take a stroll down memory lane with an updated perspective! The salad came out with a creamy blend of lemon garlic aioli and blue cheese, crunchy lettuce, and savory thick-sliced bacon. More, please!

Join the #SundaySupper chat on Twitter at 7pm eastern TONIGHT (and every Sunday with a new theme) to bring back recipes of summer past. Big thanks to Coleen from The Redhead Baker for hosting the event tonight. Check out her amazing recipes and all of the walks down memory lane linked below.

  • 4 stalks of celery diced
  • 1 medium Vidalia onion, chopped
  • 4 hard-boiled eggs sliced
  • 10 oz pack of edamame (already cooked)
  • 1 cup of mayonnaise

Directions:

Cook the bacon. Hard-boil your eggs and set them aside to cool. Whisk the mayo, lemon juice, and pressed garlic. Layer the salad as follows – romaine lettuce on the bottom, then celery, then onion, then the eggs, edamame, lemon garlic aioli mayo mixture, blue cheese. Refrigerate for at least a few hours or overnight. Add crumbled bacon before serving (unless you like cold, crumbled bacon). Enjoy!
