Martha's Layered Salad

This was my mom's layered salad recipe that she made for everything. So, I've named it for her, here on the blog!

1 medium head of lettuce, shredded
1 cup coarsely chopped celery
1/2 cup green pepper, chopped small (optional)
1/2 cup sliced water chestnuts
1 10oz package frozen green peas, separated
1 1/2 cups mayo
2T sugar
1 1/2 cups grated parmesan cheese
8 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled

Arrange the lettuce in the bottom of a large, flat-bottomed salad bowl (consider using a trifle bowl for the best presentation). Add the other veggies in layers - do not stir or toss! Spread the mayo evening over the top and sprinkle with the sugar and the cheese. Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours. Sprinkle with the crumbled bacon just before serving.

I have no idea how many this serves, but its a LOT!
