- Salad Construction:
- In a large, deep rectangular pan, place the Romaine lettuce.
- Add layers of the vegetables as follows:
- Sugar Snap peas
- Green onion
- Sweet onions
- Sweet petite peas
- Top with the creamy dressing and spread to the edges. Add crumbled cheese, sprinkle with minced parsley, cover tightly and refrigerate over night. Will remain crunchy!
- This was my Grandmother's recipe and was always made for our picnics and family gatherings. This goes great with just about any meal and is quite a crowd pleaser.
