Prep: 30min | Cook: 0min | Ready in: 30min

Step 1

Place lettuce in a large bowl. Layer peas, bell pepper, tomatoes, celery and scallions on top.

Step 2

Whisk yogurt, mayonnaise, cider vinegar, sugar (to taste), garlic powder, salt and pepper in a medium bowl until smooth. Spread the dressing evenly over top of the salad (an offset spatula is handy for this, if you have one). Sprinkle with cheese, basil and bacon. Serve room temperature or chilled.

Make Ahead Tip:

Cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day. Sprinkle with basil just before serving.
