There's no need to worry about having a special salad for the diabetics or special dressings, etc. This salad is a good choice for all.


4 cups bite-sized mixed lettuce pieces

1 cup chopped green bell pepper

1/2 chopped mild or sweet onion

1 box frozen peas

6 hard-boiled eggs, sliced

1 pkg (8 oz) shredded low-fat cheddar cheese

6 slices crisp fried bacon, crumbled

1 pkg low-fat Ranch Dressing mix

1 cup mayonnaise

1 cup low-fat plain yogurt

In a clear salad bowl, layer the following ingredients in this order: lettuce, bell pepper, onion, frozen peas and eggs. In a small mixing bowl, mix together the Ranch Dressing mix, mayonnaise and yogurt. Add atop the layers in bowl. Add cheese and bacon. Cover tightly with a lid or aluminum foil, plastic wrap, etc. Refrigerate overnight before serving. An oblong or rectangle tupperware or rubbermaid type dish with the seal lid is perfect for this recipe, especially if you are going to transport the salad.

If you don't want to use onion, replace it with a layer of small cauliflower florets.

Note: This is a good salad choice for diabetics because it has eggs, bacon, and dairy products all incorporated in it. This gives a protein balance to the carbs.
