Sarah’s Salad from The Lion House



I first tasted this as a young girl.  It’s a delicious salad and it’s very pretty in its presentation.  Be sure to mix the salt and pepper and sugar with the dressing ingredients.  Some versions of this recipe say to sprinkle it over the lettuce ingredients.  No.  Mix it with the dressing.

Salad Ingredients:

1 head iceberg lettuce, chopped and washed (
2 cups frozen peas
4 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
3 green onions, sliced (white and green parts)
3-4 ounces of Swiss cheese, sliced and cut into thin stick
2-3 tbsp fresh grated Parmesan cheese (optional)

Dressing Ingredients:

1/4 cup Mayonnaise
1/4 cup Miracle Whip
1/2 tsp sugar
1/4-1/2 tsp salt (start with 1/4 and add more if needed, some brands of mayo are saltier then others and you do not want to over salt the dressing)
1/4 tsp ground pepper


  • Combine all salad ingredients in a large salad bowl
  • Make dressing by combining and thoroughly mixing all dressing ingredients
  • Pour prepared dressing over salad and make sure you toss it until evenly coated
  • Best when served immediately
