Layered Party Pea Salad

Peas have their own special sweetness before anything is added to serve them. Maybe that’s why I close to combine them with piquant bits of tangy Swiss chess and bacon, to make what’s already good glorious! 

Serves 6

2 1/2 cups finely shredded lettuce

¼ cup finely chopped onion

1 ½ cups frozen peas, thawed

¼ cup purchased real bacon bits

½ cup fat-free mayonnaise

2 tablespoons fat-free sour cream

2 tablespoons SPLENDA granular

6 tablespoons shredded reduced –fat cheddar cheese

6 tablespoons shredded reduced –fat mozzarella cheese

Evenly arrange lettuce in an 8- by 8- inch glass dish. Layer onion ,peas, and bacon bits evenly over lettuce .in a medium bowl ,combine mayonnaise ,sour cream, and SPLENDA .carefully spread dressing mixture over top. Evenly sprinkle shredded cheddar and mozzarella cheese over dressing mixture .Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight. Divide into 6 servings.
