Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Also need 1 beautiful glass bowl, preferably with straight sides.
  2. Tear the lettuce into bite sized pieces and put 1/2 the lettuce in the bowl, spreading evenly.
  3. Clean the spinach, remove stems, and tear in bite sized pieces.
  4. Spread 1/2 the spinach in over the lettuce.
  5. Spread 1/2 of the eggs over the spinach.
  6. Spread 1/2 of the bacon over the eggs.
  7. Spread 1/2 of the peas over the bacon.
  8. Sprinkle the peas with sugar, salt, and pepper.
  9. Mix the sour cream and mayo.
  10. Spread 1/2 the dressing over the salad.
  11. Repeat the layers, ending with the second layer of salad dressing.
  12. Top the dressing with the cheese.
  13. Cover with plastic wrap and chill.
  14. Before serving the salad, clean the green onions and slice the root off.
  15. Cut all the onions the same length (about 2" taller than the bowl).
  16. Unwrap the bowl, and imagine the bowl is the face of a clock.
  17. Slide one green onion down between the salad and the bowl at each point of the clock, with the top of the onion sticking above the bowl.
  18. If there are any green onions remaining after you've used 12, then slice the remaining onions and tops and sprinkle over the salad.
  19. Use the optional ingredients for other layers, or to vary the salad the next time you make it.
  20. This salad is so pretty, you may have to take the first serving: people won't want to'mess it up'.
