Better than traditional seven layer salad, this easy side dish recipe is high protein since it is loaded with cheese, bacon and eggs. The creamy homemade dressing has an amazing flavor. It’s a layered salad perfect for picnics and potlucks.


Seven Layer Salad is a traditional American dish that is served in a glass bowl so that you can see all of the beautiful, colorful layers. Although the traditional recipe has changed slightly over the years based on what a family likes, there is one thing that has always stayed the same: People love it. it’s the PERFECT picnic side dish.


The first step to making seven layer salad is to mix up the dressing. Allowing the dressing to “rest” while you prepare the rest of the salad helps the flavors to blend together beautifully.
Our recipe calls for mayonnaise, a little sour cream, a touch of sugar for flavor and….parmesan cheese. Guys….I could add parmesan cheese to every.single.thing I eat. I find it adds amazing flavor and richness to recipes. And this seven layer salad dressing is no different!

**Pro Tip: Use freshly shredded Parmesan cheese for the best flavor. Buy a block of Parmesan and use a cheese grater to grate it finely. It’s so much better than pre-shredded Parmesan.**

1 pound maple flavored bacon
1 1/4 cups mayonnaise
¼ cup sour cream
1 tablespoon white sugar
2/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 large head iceberg lettuce (rinsed, dried, and chopped)
1 pint grape tomatoes (cut in half)
2 cups frozen green peas (thawed)
6 large hardboiled eggs
10 ounces shredded cheddar cheese (about 2 1/2 cups)


Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium high heat until evenly brown and crisp. Allow the bacon to drain on paper towels. Crumble and set aside.
Prepare the dressing by whisking together the mayonnaise, sour cream, sugar and Parmesan cheese. Cover and refrigerate until you are ready to top the salad.
In a large 4 quart glass bowl, layer the chopped lettuce*, tomatoes, peas, eggs, cheese.
Drizzle the dressing over salad, covering as much of the top as possible.
Sprinkle the top with bacon.
Cover and refrigerate until you are ready to serve it.

  1. Great video, I am going to make this today! Have you ever drizzled lemon juice on top of the last layer of vegetables? My friend told me try it because I hated to have to throw any bit of it out. It makes the salad last several days in the refrigerator, without changing the taste. I even stir the dressing into it before serving and we eat it throughout the week. Now I put the lemon juice in every time!
