I've often been known to say that I think I have one of the best jobs ever. I cook for a wonderful family during the summer months in a local area resort and in all I work about 4 months out of the year. Then my time over the next 8 months is my own to do with as I please. If you love to cook you may want to consider this type of career for yourself. When I work, I work really hard, but all in all it has its rewards. Amongst these rewards are all of the wonderful people I have come in contact with over the last 30 years. I not only feed them, I share recipes and stories with them and they in turn share with me.
This particular recipe was shared by a lovely lady who is a regular guest at the home that I work at and it is our 'go to' salad for large parties. Everyone raves about it. Try it for yourself, you will be sure to fall in love with it!  
Dressing: 1 cup mayonnaise, 1 cup bottled salad dressing (I use a white French type dressing-doesn't matter which one), 1 teaspoon each of dry mustard and Worcestershire sauce, salt & pepper to taste.

1 head each of iceberg and romaine lettuces
2 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese (I grate my own for this salad)
1 package small frozen peas
1 medium red onion-chopped
6 hard-boiled eggs-chopped
1 lb. bacon-cooked and crumbled
3 small cans sliced black olives-drained
3 small jars diced pimiento-drained

Make dressing, set aside.
Layer all salad ingredients in the order listed then top with dressing. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Toss to serve.
"It's never been an issue for me - I don't want to go on a diet, I don't want to eat a Caesar salad with no dressing, why would I do that? I ain't got time for this, just be happy and don't be stupid. If I've got a boyfriend and he loves my body then I'm not worried."~Adele-the singer
