  • Active Time 30m
  • Total Time 30m

10 servings, about 1 cup each

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.

Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day. Sprinkle with basil just before serving.
