It sometimes surprises me how something so simple can produce something so amazing.
Like this Layered Lettuce Salad.
You simply throw a variety of vegetables in a bowl and cover them with a layer of Miracle Whip, cheese and bacon, then let it sit over night. Hours later, stir it up, and you have something really special.
I know most of you have either heard of it or tried it, but since the first time I made this (at least 30 years ago), it has been one of my very favorites.
