This makeover of a Midwestern classic tops layers of lettuce, peas, bell pepper and tomatoes with a creamy, tangy dressing. The salad stays fresh underneath until it's served and gets even better when held overnight.

Wonderful side dish for our family gathering.

I made this recipe for Thanksgiving for my family, and everyone ranted and raved over it and wanted the recipe. I used plain nonfat "greek" yogurt, and I used sweetener instead of sugar. I'm going to make it again very soon.

It looks so pretty and appetizing in my glass trifle bowl.

Delicious salad

I made this easy salad yesterday. The salad was beautiful when finished. I used the veggies in the recipe and added radishes. I followed the recipe when I made the dressing and loved the taste. I did find the dressing to be too thin. I like to make this salad to eat on for a few days. I found today that the lettuce was wilted. This is delicious salad to make and serve right away. Next time I will keep the dressing separate and put it on the salad when I am ready to eat it.

The dressing had a great taste and paired well with the veggies,.

Delicious and simple!

Unlike most veggie salads this one is better made ahead. Very convenient. Tastes great and is easy to put together. I made it for an office function and liked it so much I made it again for a family gathering the next week.

Make ahead
