Just made this over Memorial Day and it was very good. My mom had it in one of her old cookbooks. 1 head lettuce 1/2 c celery- chopped 1/2 c green pepper- chopped 1/2c chopped onion 1 (10 oz) pkg frozen peas (uncooked) 1 pt Miracle Whip 2 Tbsp granulated sugar 4-6 oz sharp grated cheddar cheese 8 strips crumbled bacon (we cheated and used bacon bits) Tear lettuce into bite sized pieces and place in a large bowl or 9 x12 inch glass dish. Layer celery, pepper, onion and peas over lettuce in that order. Combine sugar with Miracle Whip and spread over lettuce mixture as you would a frosting. Top with cheese and bacon. Do not toss, cover and refrigerate 8 to 12 hours or overnight. The sugar causes onion to weep and this with the Miracle Whip makes the dressing. If I had to do anything different from what I did, I would add some more "color" into the salad (it was very green) with some carrots, different lettuces and maybe different peppers. I would also have used orange and white cheeses to add more color too. I was nervous to try it but it was very good! Us and another family were in charge of bringing salads, so we brought this for something a little different instead of another tossed salad. Very easy to make, took about 10 minutes.
