Why I Love This Recipe

This was a recipe I originally got from my cousin and changed some of the layers on. We love it in the summer. It is probably the recipe I am asked the most to bring to potlucks. It's yummy, colorful, and doesn't heat up the kitchen (in Phoenix in the summer, anything chilled is good).

Ingredients You'll Need

1 head lettuce, torn in pieces
1 bunch green onions, diced
3 tomatoes, diced or 1 pkg. cherry or grape tomatoes
2 Bell peppers, any color, diced
2 cucumbers, diced
8 oz. lean cooked ham, diced
16-20 oz. pkg. frozen peas (do not thaw)
1 c. mayonnaise
1 c. sour cream
1/2 c. sugar
2 c. shredded cheddar or monterey jack cheese
8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled


Layer the vegetables in the order given (preferably in a large glass salad bowl). Combine mayonnaise, sour cream, and sugar. Blend well. Pour over ham layer in bowl. Sprinkle with cheese, then bacon pieces. You can make substitutions as desired, such as pineapple chunks, diced purple onion, shredded carrots, etc, but we like this combination
