This recipe has been in the family for years. It is a great “make ahead” salad for special dinners. It does make a lot, so sometimes we cut it in half.
One bag (8 ounce) salad greens, iceberg or romaine
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1/2 cup grated carrot
1 small bag of frozen peas
1 small can sliced water chestnuts
2 cups mayonaise
4 Tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
3 teaspoons sugar
24 hours before serving the salad, assemble ingredients.
In a large bowl, start layering salad ingredients: lettuce, carrots, green onions…
Frozen peas and water chestnuts last.
Mix mayonnaise, Parmesan cheese and sugar together in a small bowl.
“Frost” the top of the salad with the dressing, sealing all edges. Cover with saran wrap and place in the refrigerator 24 hours. Just before serving, toss the dressing with the salad and serve.
