24 Hour Salad (And To Departure)

Well, it's been just about 24 hours since we had to say "good-bye" to my mom and niece.  We had five action packed and tourist filled days with them, complete with pottery painting, gourmet cupcakes, butterflies and many, many laughs.  It is always sad to make the airport departure farewells and we miss them so much already.

Beautiful girl and butterfly at Westminster's "Butterfly Pavilion".
She named her butterfly "Rosetta".

Cute as a button!
For our Sunday night family dinner before they left, we made my mom's favorite grilled Tri Tip steak, mustard roasted baby red potatoes and this 24 hour salad.  Perfect ending to a perfect visit with family.

24 Hour Salad

1 head iceberg lettuce, washed and chopped
1/2 cup diced celery
1/2 cup diced red pepper
1/4 cup diced red onion
1 cup frozen baby peas
2 Tbl. granulated sugar
2 cups mayonnaise (I like Best Foods Olive Oil mayonnaise)
1-1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
6 slices cooked bacon, chopped

In a large trifle or tall clear glass dish, layer ingredients (from bottom to top), lettuce, celery, red pepper, red onion, baby peas, sugar, mayonnaise (spread evenly over peas), cheddar cheese and finish off with chopped bacon.

Cover dish tightly with plastic wrap.  Refrigerate 24 hours before serving.

Everyone loves Angus!!
