  • Begin by frying or baking the bacon. I like to line a large, rimmed cookie sheet with aluminum foil, place the bacon in strips, and bake at 375 for 20 minutes (turn over 1/2 way through). Set aside and allow to cool. Next wash and tear up the lettuce and place into large mixing bowl. Add peas, chopped celery and chopped green onions.

    Mix up the salad dressing and then add to green ingredients. Stir well. Add in bacon and nuts and stir again.

    Chill for at least 2 hours before serving. Delicious with fresh baguettes and real butter. Garnish with bibb lettuce, if desired.

    As an alternative to frozen peas, use 2 cups of freshly shelled tiny green peas. This would really bring out the flavor!
