Pea Salad Recipe


Description

This Pea Salad Recipe is a perfect side for any meal!  It pairs perfectly with ham at Easter, or with grilled meats in summer!  Creamy and flavourful!


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1750 g bag frozen peas
  • 1 lb bacon, cooked and chopped
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped red onion
  • 1 cup small cubed cheddar cheese

Dressing

  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tbsp sour cream
  • 2 tsp milk

Instructions

  1. In a salad bowl toss together the thawed peas, onion, cheese and bacon.  (See notes)
  2. In a separate bowl, blend together the ingredients for the dressing: the mayonnaise, sour cream and milk.  I like to use a hand blender for this step.
  3. Add the dressing to the peas and mix well.
  4. You can serve this salad right away, or it can rest in the fridge until you are ready to serve it, for up to 1 or 2 days.  This salad actually gets better after it has rested.

Notes

You can thaw the peas in the fridge overnight.  OR you can toss the salad with frozen peas if you are planning to serve the salad a few hours later.
