Colorado West Stratified Salad

Critter Dave Alden sent in a recipe by Bill, from an out-of-print cookbook The All-American Truck Stop Cookbook. Page 75 contains Bill’s “Colorado West Stratified Salad” and Lulu Roman’s “Lulu’s Chicken Salad”. (You may remember Lulu from such sophisticated fare as Hee Haw.)

For the visually impaired, here’s Bill’s recipe:

Colorado West Stratified Salad

Tear the cleaned lettuce into small bite-size pieces and place in a 9 x 12-inch glass dish. Layer the celery, eggs, peas, peppers, onion, and bacon in that order. Add the sugar to the mayonnaise and spread over the top as you would frosting. Top with the grated cheese. Cover and refrigerate for 8 to 12 hours. At serving time, garnish with additional bacon and parsley.

Yield: 6 servings
