Layered Pea Salad

This is a salad that Randal used to make years ago, and as I had never tried it, I thought I would give it a go this week. It's a little too sweet for me, so next time I'll reduce the amount of sugar.

4 cups lettuce
3 hard boiled eggs, diced
1/2 green pepper, diced
1/4 red onion, diced
1/2 cup celery, diced
1 1/2 cups frozen peas
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese
3 strips bacon

Place the lettuce in the bottom of a large bowl, add the eggs, celery, peppers and onion, cover with the frozen peas. Spread the mayonnaise over the top and sprinkle with sugar. Top with cheese, cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours. When ready to serve top with cooked bacon.
